“There’s going to be brownies and fudge, I’ve heard [rumors] of a hot chocolate bar. I’ve also heard some rumblings of chocolate-covered potato chips and chocolate-covered bacon,” she said. “There will be some candies and cakes, which all have some sort of chocolate with them.”

Donoho said this year marks the festival’s return since it stopped in 2020 due to COVID-19. Previous Chocolate Festivals benefited different charities each year, so this is the first year the festival will benefit the preschool.
