The very popular Belmont Shore Chocolate Festival, usually held in February, has made a few changes. A new name, The Belmont Shore Chocolate Festival & Spring Sweets!
Also, this year’s festival will be a spring event held on Saturday, March 24th. Belmont Shore Businesses will be offering an array of Chocolate Treats for all chocolate lovers along with other Spring Sweets to satisfy the whole family.
There is no entry fee for the event, only the cost of tickets used to purchase the chocolate items. Books of twelve tickets are $10 and will be sold the week of the event at the following locations: La Strada, Mail Boxes Etc., Sweet Jill’s, We Olive & The Beach on 2nd St. Tickets may be purchased during the festival in front of Chase Bank (5200 E. 2nd St.).
Something that will not change is The Homemade Chocolate Dessert Contest for those who think they have a recipe for a chocolate dessert worthy of an award. A panel of judges will sample the desserts and choose winners in three categories: Chocolate Cakes & Pies, Chocolate Cookies & Brownies and Unique Chocolate Treats. Entry forms are available on the events page of the Belmont Shore website. It costs $10 per dessert to enter. The contest tent will be located on Corona Ave. (only judges may sample the desserts).
Those who would rather eat chocolate than make it are welcome to enter the Chocolate Pie Eating Contest. Contestants will race each other to see who can eat an individual size chocolate cream pie the fastest. Winners of all contests will be announced at 4:00PM on Corona Ave. (south of 2nd St.) and will receive trophies. The following are the age categories and contest times:
3:00PM Kids 6 – 8 3:30PM Kids 15 – 17
3:10PM Kids 9 -11 3:40PM Adults
3:20PM Kids 12 – 14
