Hot Chocolate in the Park February 5th 2:00-4:00 p.m.
When we think of February, we think of African American History Month, President’s Day and, of course, Valentine’s Day. But did you know that during the month of February there are five days dedicated to chocolate celebration? On the 1st we have National Dark Chocolate Day, World Nutella Day on the 5th, National Chocolate Mint Day on the 19th, National Chocolate Covered Nut Day on the 25th and finally National Chocolate Souffle Day on the 28th. And honestly, we could add Valentine’s Day to the list since a box of chocolates is a common gift for Valentine’s Day.
If you are like us, you don’t need a reason to celebrate chocolate, but it sure is sweet to have one! So, for the love of chocolate, come have hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookies with your neighbors on Saturday, February 5th, 2:00 pm-4:00 pm at the Glenville Park Pavilion. Free of charge!
