Christmas is over. Valentine’s Day is in the rearview mirror. Now the best place to get your chocolate fix is the 11th annual Mobile Chocolate Festival this Saturday, March 30, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Grounds, 1035 Cody Road N. Proceeds benefit Penelope House, Mobile’s shelter for women and children who are victims of violence.
Admission is free for children 13 and younger. General admission is $3 in advance, with tickets available at Penelope’s Closet, Flour Girls, Bloomin’ Lollipops and Three Georges. Tickets cost $5 the day of the event. Parking is free.
The festival is always brimming with all things chocolate — a cupcake booth, a Chocolate Milk Mustache table and a Project Yum-Way fashion show.
There will also be vendors with various samples and products, a demonstrations by Mobile Fixture and an Open Cruise-In Car Show where antique and classic car lovers can view the inside and outside of some of the area’s finest vehicles.
Add beautiful Azalea Trail Maids, Disney princesses, the BayBears Bear and other business mascots, food trucks and Alec Naman Catering, and you have one of the most popular events of spring.
