Chocolate! Chocolate! Chocolate!
Celebrate Chocolate Time in Olde Town Arvada
Saturday, February 8, 2014
Presented by the Arvada Festivals Commission and Historic Olde Town Arvada, this event includes the Taste of Chocolate; a Chocolate Treasure Hunt; the Chocolate Cookie Contest; storytelling, face painting and balloon artistry; romantic carriage rides; and giant hearts all around town. Proceeds benefit the Arvada Ralston House, a child advocacy and resource center for kids who have been abused. During the last event, the Taste of Chocolate raised over $2,000 for the organization.
Indulge your love of chocolate at the Taste of Chocolate, a sampling of good-for-you delights. Lovers of mankind’s best-loved desserts sample cakes, candies, brownies, fudge, chocolate drinks and other delicious concoctions.
Join the adventure of the Chocolate Treasure Hunt and discover many Olde Town stores to search for Chocolate Clues. Teams and individuals will gather clues to compete for prize drawings of large chocolate-enriched baskets of goodies. This fun family activity is free and takes place in Town Square. Many of the businesses will also offer treats of chocolate to sustain you in your search.
