Celebrate Charity And Chocolate This Weekend

The Carolina Chocolate Festival will take place this weekend on the Crystal Coast.

It's being held at the Crystal Coast Civic Center in Morehead City.

The event features multiple vendors from near and far, and you can find everything from chocolate cakes to chocolate ice cream to chocolate chili.

Organizers say all the proceeds from the 2013 Carolina Chocolate Festival will support Carteret County Domestic Violence, Carteret County 4H, White Oak Church Youth Ministries, the Beaufort Woman’s Club, Beaufort Sister Cities, Carteret General Hospital Volunteers, and Second Blessings Community Outreach Ministry.

In the past ten years, the festival has raised over $300,000 to assist 30 deserving charities in Carteret County.

The festival goes from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

Tickets are $8 for adults and $2 for children ages 5-12.
