2018 Lakewood Chocolate Walk
October 25 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
UPDATE: The 10th Annual Lakewood Chocolate Walk is sold out
Calling all chocolate lovers – get ready to celebrate a decade of chocolate decadence! A delectably memorable evening awaits when the 10th Annual Lakewood Chocolate Walk takes place on Thursday, October 25, from 6 to 9 p.m. in Downtown Lakewood.
The Chocolate Walk – hosted by the Downtown Lakewood Business Alliance and LakewoodAlive – represents a popular autumn tradition with a devout following of chocoholics from all over Northeast Ohio and beyond. Participants visit more than 20 shops and eateries in Downtown Lakewood that are Sweet Stops 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.
A General Admission ticket gains you entrance to First Federal Lakewood (14806 Detroit Avenue) at 6 p.m., where you’ll receive your Chocolate Walk supplies. Guided by a map and the signs and festive bows decorating participating merchants, you’ll take to the streets to visit the Sweet Stops, collecting something chocolate-themed at each location. You may visit the stops in any order you wish – the merchants eagerly await you.
The VIP ticket option exists for those seeking to elevate the joy of the chocolate experience to an even greater level of bliss. Sponsored and hosted by Malley’s Chocolates, the Pre-Walk VIP Reception – limited to only 50 lucky attendees – takes place from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. at Malley’s Lakewood location (14822 Madison Avenue), where guests will sample decadent treats, as well as appetizers, wine and beer. Transportation aboard the “Chocolate Express” will be provided from Downtown Lakewood to the VIP Reception and back. VIP tickets will only be available for purchase online starting at 10 a.m. on October 1.
The evening ends for all attendees with the Final Stop at First Federal Lakewood. You may stop here whenever you finish your walk, turn in your completed Golden Egg Hunt form, wet your whistle and grab a salty snack. The Final Stop will be your last chance to purchase tickets for the 50/50 raffle and raffle baskets, with the drawings held at 8:55 p.m. You need not be present to win.
Proceeds will support LakewoodAlive and the Downtown Lakewood Business Alliance, a merchant association focused on ensuring Downtown Lakewood remains one of the region’s top destinations for dining, shopping and playing. Don’t miss this memorable, chocolate-infused evening in Downtown Lakewood!
