Mainstreet Piqua plans Chocolate Walk

PIQUA — Mainstreet Piqua’s annual Chocolate Walk will be offered from 3-8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 9 . Those participating in this ticketed event can enjoy a walk through downtown and visit more than 20 locations and experience chocolate goodness in all of its wondrous forms.

Some stops have treats that can be enjoyed immediately and some give you a treat to save for later. A limited number of tickets will be available for $20 per person and can be purchased starting Tuesday, Sept. 8. Chocolate Walk tickets may be purchased at Winans Chocolates + Coffees, 310 Spring St. and Readmore’s Hallmark, 430 N. Main St.

The hours of the chocolate walk have been extended from previous years due to COVID-19. Bags and lists of participating businesses will be distributed beginning at 3 p.m. so that those with more flexibility in their schedule can start their walk earlier to cut down on congestion in the stores.

All the businesses in the walk will have individually fully wrapped candy with no bare-handed contact with the sweet treats. Every participant’s bag will be overflowing with an amazing amount of chocolate at the end of the evening.

Winans Chocolates + Coffees, Readmore’s Hallmark, Park National Bank, Hartzell Hardwoods & Hartzell Air Movement as well as Mutual Federal Savings Bank are the event co-sponsors.

Ticket holders will begin at the Winans location at 310 Spring St. starting at 3 p.m. where participants will turn in their tickets and pick up their Chocolate Walk bag and a list of participating businesses. During the evening they will make their way to all the participants to get their treat. The evening will conclude at Readmore’s Hallmark where there will be refreshments and exciting register-to-win opportunities.
