The Edgefield Community Development Association is sponsoring a new ChocAround, Thursday, February 27, from 4:00 until 8:00 p.m. The first ChocAround had been planned for the 13th of February, but due to the storm that brought ice and cold, which froze all plans for the Valentine weekend, the ChocAround was postponed.
This Thursday, the event will be recaptured with verve and enthusiasm: local merchants will open their doors and roll out the red carpet for shoppers to peruse merchandise while sipping a drink and tasting chocolate confections, offering up a fun filled night of hospitality and specials in their shops for you to enjoy. ECDA officials state: “Make sure to get your shopping passport at any of the downtown shops and restaurants and have it punched by each location that you visit for a chance to win an over the top gift basket. All of the contents have been donated by merchants and artists and also include a bottle of wine & and chocolates as well as wonderful gifts and treats.”
Beautiful luminaries will provide a candlelit stroll to the participating local businesses. “Find the perfect gift for all of the those on your list – even though Valentine’s Day has passed us by — at one of our lovely shops and make sure to stay and dine in one of our delicious restaurants.” The invitation is to join in this “fun, beautiful, and delicious event.”
