Perhaps mixing chocolate with exercise isn’t an idea that many would consider, but in Lansing it has certainly stuck, as Lansing’s Old Town debuts its fifth Annual Chocolate Walk.
“Throughout this event, community members have the opportunity to get to know Old Town and all of its unique businesses, retailers and restaurants,” said an Old Town Commercial Association press release. “All are encouraged to come and take part in the Old Town chocolate walk and collect gourmet chocolates just in time for Valentine’s Day.”
With the purchase of a ticket, participants will each receive a 2-pound chocolate box to fill to the brim with sweets, a punch card and a map. From 3 to 7 p.m., event-goers will follow the provided map to each participating business and collect its featured gourmet chocolate. And attendees can expect more than simply stopping off for treats.
“We are excited to continue the tradition of providing a warming station at the Old Town Marquee at our Chocolate Walk,” said the press release. “Participants can pop in for some hot chocolate, generously donated by Eagle Eye Golf Club, and warm up from a Michigan winter evening.”
Based on sold out attendance from last year, the Old Town Commercial Association advises interested individuals to sign up early.
Tickets to the 5th Annual Chocolate Walk in Old Town cost $25 in advance and $30 day of. To purchase tickets, visit http://otca.wildapricot.org/event-2784887. For additional information about the event contact the Old Town Commercial Association at [email protected] or call 517-485-4283.
