Chocolate lovers in Ballston Spa brave the cold

The chilly temperatures didn’t stop people in Ballston Spa from sampling the community’s annual Chocolate Festival on Friday.

Approximately 23 sweet spots in the community were handing out samples for $1 each.

Each business doubled as a warming station as people paraded and mingled door-to-door, sampling chocolate treats and shopping along the way.

People were then being asked to vote for three categories – dessert, savory, and beverage.

The Chocolate Festival was set to go until 8 p.m.
