The eighth annual Chocolate Lovers' Festival will bring a world of epicurean delights to area choco-holics beginning at 9 a.m. and continuing until 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 11 at the Inn of the Ozarks Convention Center in Eureka Springs, Ark..
"This is the perfect day-trip or weekend get-away for those wanting to celebrate Valentine's Day or just indulge in waterfalls of chocolate," said Pam Hinson, manager for Holiday Island Vacation Rentals. "Vacation Rentals is thrilled to be presenting the Chocolate Lovers' Festival again this year."
This year's event will feature multiple dipping fountains in addition to cakes, cookies, ice cream and beverages. Chocolate novelty items and body products will also be available. Vendors will showcase their items and offer samples to attendees.
The festival will also have several "best of" contests in both amateur and professional categories. Some of those include best decorated cake, best candy and most creative dessert.
The event will benefit many area organizations, including Exeter High School's FFA, which is one of 29 exhibitors.
