Lakewood Chocolate Walk
October 27 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Calling all chocolate lovers: Downtown Lakewood Business Alliance’s Chocolate Walk is right around the corner!
The Chocolate Walk is a delectable and decadent evening all about chocolate! On October 27, 2016 from 6-9 p.m., participants will visit a wide variety of shops and eateries that are Sweet Stops on the Chocolate Walk. Each Sweet Stop provides a unique chocolate treat.
Limited to only 300 attendees, this hotly-anticipated event always sells out quickly. And why would it not? Who doesn’t love the subtle scent of the cocoa bean, the sensuous feel of velvety smooth chocolate melting deliciously on your tongue, the explosion of intense, delectable flavor. And now we hear that a little dark chocolate every day is a health benefit. That just confirms our suspicion that chocolate is nature’s perfect food!
Chocolate Walk Schedule:
5:15 – 6:30 p.m. – VIP Pre-Walk Reception
6 p.m. – Chocolate Walk Begins
8 – 9 p.m. – Grand Finale Sundae Bar
The Pre-Walk VIP Reception at Fear’s Confections & Ice Cream Joy, limited to only 50 attendees, takes place from 5:15-6:30 pm. This addition to the evening is for those who want to elevate the joy of the chocolate experience to an even greater level of bliss. VIPs will be afforded personalized check-in, a VIP name tag and entrance to the walk. Along with the delicious confections from Fear’s and smooth, creamy frozen goodness from Ice Cream Joy you’ll sample appetizers, wine and beer.
A General Admission ticket will gain you entrance to First Federal Lakewood (14806 Detroit Avenue) at 6 p.m., where you will receive your bag, wristband, event map, and have a chance to purchase raffle tickets. Guided by your map and the signs and festive bows decorating participating merchants, you’ll take to the streets to visit the Sweet Stops, collecting something chocolate at each location. You may visit the stops in any order you wish. Our merchants eagerly await you!
The Golden Egg Scavenger Hunt features a dozen golden eggs (numbered 1-12) scattered among the stops. Find an egg and mark on your map the egg number next to the business in which you spotted it. Turn in your map at the Grand Finale, and if you found all 12, you’ll receive a raffle ticket to the drawing for a $50 Golden Egg Visa gift card, courtesy of First Federal Lakewood.
The evening ends with the Grand Finale Sundae Bar, hosted by First Federal Lakewood and sponsored by Discount Drug Mart, from 8 to 9 p.m. There guests will enjoy libations and yes, more chocolate, while listening to guitarist James Stringer. The Grand Finale will be your last chance to purchase tickets for the 50/50 and buyer’s choice raffles, with the drawings held at 8:55 p.m. You need not be present to win.
Tickets go on sale to the general public starting October 1st and to LakewoodAlive donors on September 27th.
