It does not matter if you are getting into the spirit of Valentine’s Day, or just love chocolate, Willimantic is the place to be on Saturday, Feb. 16 for the beginning of 9th annual chocolate festival.
The festival was supposed to happen on Feb. 9, but it had to be postponed because of the blizzard that left 3 feet of snow.
The "Let Them Eat Cake" chocolate cake baking contest, the chocolate chip stroll of Willimantic's downtown and the Chocolate Lovers' Soiree and Cabaret.
If you indulged too much, work off the chocolate during the 2-mile Cupid shuffle race.
