Each winter, Burlington hosts a WinterFest where everyone gets out and celebrates the season. Why not? It beats being stuck inside all day and quite honestly, it’s right about now that Cabin Fever starts to set in. Hosted over the course of the weekend, activities include snow sculpting, ice carving, jumping in the freezing cold lake, music, food and lots of other family activities.
As part of the festivities, Lake Champlain Chocolates will be hosting a bit of indoor fun where families and friends can come to warm up and have a good time. So, if you’re in the area Saturday, February 7 from noon until 4pm, stop in and say hello. There will be chocolate demonstrations, chocolate samplings, a hot chocolate bar and even Valentines crafts for kids.
One of the highlights of the day will be with Chocolate sculptor Emily Walton Jones hand crafting and personalizing Heart Throbs
– large dark chocolate hearts filled with raspberry truffle ganache. You can also see her latest Valentine-themed chocolate sculptures. It’s fun, it’s free and it’s warm so stop on by when you’re out and about enjoying Winterfest.
