Ballston Spa is gearing up for its eighth Chocolate Fest.

Area restaurants, bakeries and chefs are welcome to compete to showcase their talents by preparing sample-sized chocolate offerings.

There are three categories: sweet, savory and chocolate beverage.

These treats will be judged by people at the Chocolate Fest.

While enjoying chocolate, visitors will also enjoy a variety of First Friday activities going on throughout the village, including live music, artist demonstrations and special promotions just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Last year’s festival featured more than 20 sweet spots in the downtown area, and more than 1,500 visitors came to the village for the event. The festival runs from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on February 3.

This submission comes to us from the Ballston Spa Business and Professional Association.
