Downtown Bellefontaine Plans Chocolate Walk


Does the cold, gloomy, January weather got you feeling a bit down? Do you have the winter blues? It’s time to shake it off and here is the perfect way to do it!

This First Friday event is the perfect outing to put a little pep and your step, and a little—okay, a lot—of sugar in your body, allowing you to officially shake off those winter blues.

Downtown Bellefontaine’s famous Chocolate Walk is back and sweeter than ever! Sponsored by Queen of Hearts Fine Chocolates & Gifts, you and your family and friends (the more the merrier!) are cordially invited to partake in a tasty stroll through Downtown Bellefontaine and collect chocolate. Downtown Bellefontaine Partnership’s director Micky Groves, gives the complete details:

The Chocolate Walk takes place on Friday, February 3rd, from 5 – 8 PM. For just $25 for one or 2/$40, you will receive that golden ticket, giving you access to a passport and an empty chocolate box, the necessary tools to participate in this delicious adventure! There will be 19 stops for you to explore and collect candy from, meaning you’ll have no trouble whatsoever filling up the custom shopping bag handed out before the event.

In case you’re curious about just how much chocolate you’ll be receiving . . . it’s over half a pound! Chocolates from Maries, City Sweets, and DeBrand will be included in the walk. Whether you decide to share your loot or keep it all to yourself is entirely your choice. Better yet, though, the fun doesn’t end there!

In total, more than 35 Downtown Bellefontaine businesses will be offering locally sourced treats and special discounts for you and your loved ones to enjoy. Make sure to hit every spot to see what great treasures you can find.

Tickets are almost sold out, and won’t last through the weekend. Get out of the house and join in the fun!
