15th Annual Belmont Shore Chocolate Festival!
Belmont Shore Businesses will be offering an array of chocolate treats and other sweets for all chocolate lovers along with other sweets to satisfy the whole family. With over 25 restaurants participating, everyone will be able to find something to satisfy that sweet tooth! There is no entry fee for the event, only the cost of tickets used to purchase the dessert items. Twelve tickets for $10 will be sold beginning at 11 am on the day of the event in front of Chase Bank (5200 E. 2nd).
Enter the Homemade Chocolate Dessert Contest if you 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. The cost is $10 per dessert to enter. The contest tent will be located in the parking lot next to Chase Bank, 5200 E. 2nd St. (only judges may sample the desserts). The contest begins at 12 pm and the awards will be handed out at 1 pm. This year they are having a 17 and under age category so encourage your young bakers to enter the contest.
Starting around 3 pm those who would rather eat chocolate than make it are welcome to enter the Hof's Hut Chocolate Pie Eating Contest. Contestants will race each other to see who can eat an individual size chocolate cream pie the fastest.
