The 24th Annual Gingerbread Village was unveiled Monday at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel lobby. Creations were inspired by scenes from the wizarding world.

The event came together with more than 1,000 volunteer hours, an estimated 1,200 pounds of dough, 800 pounds of icing, 200 pounds of white chocolate, 250 pounds of almond paste and hundreds of pounds of candy.

The Gingerbread Village is open 24 hours a day and runs through Jan. 1. The free event has raised more than $841,000 in donations for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
