Have a Blast with the 30th ChocolateFest

If you happen to be in Wisconsin this weekend, or you can get there, you’ll have a blast at the 30th Annual ChocolateFest. This is a major fundraiser for the area’s non-profit organizations and it has, in recent years, generated almost cake-pops-693645_960_720$100,000 annually for charitable groups.

Held over Memorial Day Weekend, the event has many aspects to it, and this year’s theme is Vote for Chocolate. You can enter the Chocolate Experience tent where you’ll see chocolate to eat, carving contests, cooking demonstrations, and even a fashion show featuring clothing made from…Nestle’ candy wrappers. There will be oodles of vendors as well, of course, selling their chocolate wares.

They have an $8 Taster Ticket that offers 12 chocolate samples inside the tent. With the chocolate cooking contest, high school students will compete for top honors. Demonstrations will take place with Dan Small, host of MPTV’s “Outdoor Wisconsin,” Chef Ross and Chef Kevin Rausch of Lake Lawn Resort, Delavan.

Other activities in the area will be a fireworks display, the Jaycees arts and crafts fair in Echo Park and the community Memorial Day parade.
