VAN WERT – The 5th annual Main Street Van Wert Chocolate Walk was a massive success with 300 tickets sold – making it a sold-out event.

Thirty-eight downtown businesses handed out sweet treats to those who strolled through the downtown area during a sunny afternoon. Carriage rides where available thanks to Kitchens Inc, who with Stephanie Dawn, sponsored the event.

Pictured are many individuals downtown enjoying the event, which ended at the Wassenberg Art Center with a soup contest.
