The annual Long Grove Chocolate Festival just concluded. To me the Long Grove Chocolate Festival signifies two things: Summer has finally arrived and chocolate lovers can reconvine.
If you missed the Long Grove Chocolate Festival this year, I definitely encourage you put it on a must see for next year. I enjoyed walking up and down the traffic-controlled streets of downtown Long Grove to view mouth-watering selections of chocolate covered fruits, desserts and free samples! There is nothing better than celebrating the warm weather than by spending time outdoors, listening to live music, and window shopping. After purchasing a chocolate treat at the Long Grove Chocolate Festival, sit and relax by the spring gardens and running fountains.
Long Grove’s Chocolate Fest is perfect for all ages. This year’s events at the Long Grove Chocolate Festival included pony riding, an ice-cream eating contest, inflateables, and a tye-dye tent.
Long Grove is a city full of rich history. It’s town, full of shops and restaurants, is modeled in a unique fashion, and serves as a great place to find trendy knick-knacks and art.
Long Grove’s farmers market is scheduled to open on June 12th. For information on how to become a food vendor, artisan, or merchant for future Long Grove events contact Star Events at (773) 665-4682. Details & applications are available online at www.StarEvents.com
