One of my favorite events of the summer is coming right up on Saturday, July 29. Chocolate Fest! It’s the 18th year that Waterville Valley has hosted this fun evening that features — you guessed it — chocolate! Grab a blanket or folding chair, pack a picnic and a bottle of your favorite red or white libation and come to Town Square for an indulgent evening of chocolate, music, chocolate, and … well … chocolate.
The fun starts at 5:30 p.m. with a free outdoor concert by Songs with Molly. From 6-8:30 p.m. chocolate treats will be sold by the piece (cash only, please). Kevin from KRM Chocolates will teach you how to make truffles from 6-7 p.m. Make your guesses at the “Name the Candy Bar” contest from 6-7 p.m. The first person to correctly identify all 10 candy bars will win a $25 gift card to Sugar Rush.
Amoskeag Beverages will be offering craft beer samples from 6-8:30 p.m., including Ithaca Raspberry Soiree, Rogue Mocha Porter, Clown Shoes Chocolate Sombrero and Great North Robust Vanilla Porter.
