Today is the Chocolate Festival at the Aventura Mall. Here’s the press release about the event. Since it’s been raining all weekend, it’s the perfect way to enjoy the day…the video is from a great chocolate festival in Italy.
Satisfy that ever-present sweet tooth at Aventura Mall’s annual Chocolate Festival on Sunday, October 9, from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. A chocoholic’s dream, the mall’s Center Court will showcase a decadent display of delicious morsels prepared by some of South Florida’s most popular restaurants.
At this true celebration of all things chocolate, visitors tantalize their taste buds by purchasing tickets at the event ($1 each or 12 for $10) and exchanging them for the treats. And starting at 2 p.m., Aventura Mall will host a runway show featuring chocolate-inspired fashions designed by students from Ai Miami International University of Art & Design.
The Chocolate Festival also includes a kids’ chocolate station and raffles for fabulous prizes will be held throughout the event. Proceeds benefit the Children’s Craniofacial Association.
