Get ready to rejoice, chocolate lovers!  A delectable evening awaits when the 9th Annual Lakewood Chocolate Walk takes place on Thursday, October 26, from 6 to 9 p.m. in Downtown Lakewood.

Lakewood Chocolate WalkThe Chocolate Walk – hosted by LakewoodAlive and the Downtown Lakewood Business Alliance (DLBA) – represents a popular autumn tradition with a devout following of chocoholics from all over Northeast Ohio.  Participants visit more than 20 shops and eateries in Downtown Lakewood that are Sweet Stops on the Chocolate Walk.  In an arrangement that would make the late Gene Wilder of “Willy Wonka” fame flash his trademark smile, each Sweet Stop provides visitors a unique chocolate treat.

Limited to 300 attendees, this much-anticipated event sold out very quickly.  A General Admission ticket gains you entrance to First Federal Lakewood (14806 Detroit Avenue) at 6 p.m., where you’ll receive your Chocolate Walk supplies.  Guided by a map and the signs and festive bows decorating participating merchants, you’ll take to the streets to visit the Sweet Stops, collecting something chocolate-themed at each location.  You may visit the stops in any order you wish – the merchants eagerly await you.

For those seeking to elevate the joy of the chocolate experience to an even greater level of bliss, a VIP ticket option is available.  The Pre-Walk VIP Reception, limited to only 50 attendees, takes place from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. at KB Confections (13519 Detroit Avenue), where guests will sample decadent treats, as well as appetizers, wine and beer.  Transportation aboard the “Chocolate Express” will be provided from Downtown Lakewood to the VIP Reception and back.

Lakewood Chocolate WalkThe evening ends for all attendees with the Final Stop at First Federal Lakewood.  You may stop in there whenever you finish your walk, turn in your completed Golden Egg Hunt form, wet your whistle and grab a salty snack.  The Final Stop will be your last chance to purchase tickets for the 50/50 raffle and raffle baskets, with the drawings held at 8:55 p.m.  You need not be present to win.

Thank you to Insomnia Cookies (new location at 18508 Detroit Avenue in Lakewood) for donating a large batch of cookies to be enjoyed during the 9th Annual Lakewood Chocolate Walk.  A special thanks is also in order to Aladdin’s Eatery and Upper Crust Lakewood for furnishing food for the Pre-Walk VIP Reception.

Don’t miss this memorable, chocolatey evening!  Proceeds support the Downtown Lakewood Business Alliance and LakewoodAlive’s Downtown Lakewood Program.
