It’s safe to say the combination of delectable chocolate and Downtown Lakewood makes for a hot ticket.
Tickets for the 9th Annual Lakewood Chocolate Walk went on sale online today, October 2, at 10 a.m. and sold out in less than five minutes. A limited number of General Admission tickets were also made available today at lion and blue but those tickets also sold out in less than one half-hour.
The Chocolate Walk – hosted by LakewoodAlive and the Downtown Lakewood Business Alliance – represents a popular autumn tradition with a devout following of chocoholics from all over Northeast Ohio. Participants visit more than 20 shops and eateries in Downtown Lakewood that are Sweet Spots on the Chocolate Walk. In an arrangement that would make the late Gene Wilder of “Willy Wonka” fame flash his trademark smile, each Sweet Stop provides visitors a unique chocolate treat.
Limited to 300 attendees, this much-anticipated event always sells out quickly, with the 2016 edition reaching sellout status within eight hours. Still, this year’s Chocolate Walk has generated unprecedented demand from both Lakewoodites and regional chocolate enthusiasts.
Proceeds from the Lakewood Chocolate Walk support the Downtown Lakewood Business Alliance and LakewoodAlive’s Downtown Lakewood Program. For more information, please visit LakewoodAlive.org/ChocolateWalk.
