Chocolate Lovers’ Day is a one-day chocolate extravaganza inviting the public to indulge themselves in an array of chocolate creations. For only $5 per person (children under 5 are free), registrants may sample tasty chocolate treats at each business while accumulating points towards the grand prize drawing. This year the grand prize is 4 tickets to Hershey Park in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
On Chocolate Lovers' Day, registration will begin at 10:30 a.m. at Monongalia Arts Center (107 High St., beside Hotel Morgan), Tanner's Alley (416 High St.), Arts Monongahela (201 High St., beside Huntington Bank) and Lebanese Bistro (156 Clay St., in the Wharf District). Registration will end at 2:30pm.
With 62 businesses participating in this year’s festivities, we’ve decided to spice things up a bit. This year, each attendee will have the opportunity to be entered into the grand prize drawing up to THREE times:
1. By collecting at least 90 points across the Downtown and its Wharf District to receive one entry.
2. By visiting Mountain State Brewing Company, Lebanese Bistro AND the Visitor’s Center for an additional entry.
3. By visiting Wings Ole, Morgantown Brewing Company AND Mountain Peoples Co-Op for another entry.
While you can’t mix and match these options, they do provide several opportunities for you to get closer to the grand prize: 4 tickets to Hershey Park in Hershey, PA. To be entered into the drawing, make certain to return your hole punched brochure to either Arts Monongahela or Monongalia Arts Center no later than 3:30pm.
Want to start off your day in Downtown’s Wharf District to ensure that you collect all of the big points early? You’re in luck. Lebanese Bistro will be hosting registration for Chocolate Lovers’ Day from 10:30 a.m. – 2:30 pm on the day of the event. Our recommendation: take this opportunity to skip the lines in Downtown and get three entries toward the grand prize.
Whether you're here for the treats or the points (or both), come celebrate Downtown Morgantown with us while experiencing all that the businesses have to offer. You can’t afford to miss a store or a morsel of chocolate during this once a year opportunity!
