10th Anniversary of ChocolateFest:
Ten years ago on a cold Saturday morning in far north Grapevine, ChocolateFest was born. It was a new
kind of fund raising event celebrating chocolate, and it attracted a few hundred chocolate lovers. Now,
ChocolateFest has grown to a full blown event covering a Friday evening and a Saturday, and it has
moved to the heart of Grapevine where it now attracts a total of 1500 chocolate lovers. Come join us as
we celebrate Chocolate and raise funds to assist people in need or crisis.
