Dysart’s Fourth Annual Chocolate Walk

Dysart’s Fourth Annual Chocolate Walk was held on March 23rd from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. The Dysart Business Builders and the Dysart Development Corporation sponsored the Chocolate Walk. An estimated 400 people sampled chocolate candy, cookies, cupcakes, fudge, truffles and more during the event. The chocolate vendors had a very successful day and those who sampled the sweet delights, purchased their favorites and had a great time. The Easter Bunny made an appearance, there was wine tasting in some of the stores to compliment the chocolates and for the shoppers there were sales and new merchandise.
