Chocolate Lovers weekend in Ocean Grove, New Jersey

Chocolate Lovers Weekend: This pictures is of Main Avenue and Pilgrim Pathway

There comes a time in every person’s life when they just have to have something  “chocolate.”   The Victorian town of Ocean Grove, New Jersey, dedicates a whole weekend to “Chocolate Lovers.” 

Every February as Valentine’s Day grows near, The Chamber of Commerce of Ocean Grove inspires everyone to celebrate love and chocolate.  Thus far, it’s been a great combination for town residents and for the visitors that come to celebrate.

This year the celebration is scheduled for Saturday, February 19th and Sunday February 20th.   The weekend is centered around tours, a winter walk, hunt for hearts, and Dine the Night Away.  Those are  all scheduled for Saturday. 

The Tour  —  The historic town shows off their charming Victorian inns on Saturday the 19th for a peek inside and also for a taste of something sweet.   The tour is free and is from 11 AM to 4 PM.

Winter Walk — Also on Saturday the 19th, with a walking tour game, where participants can win prizes.   Instructions are available at the Chamber office located at 45 Pilgrim Pathway from 10 AM to 4 PM.  Completed puzzles must be returned to the Chamber office before 5 PM

Hunt for Hearts — The shopkeepers have a special “heart” placed somewhere in their shops and you must find the heart.  Game boards and instructions can also be picked up at the Chamber office. 

Restaurants  — Open for lunch from 12 noon to 3PM.  Dinner from 5PM to 10PM.   Each participating restaurant is preparing special delicious Chocolate Lovers’ dinners for your dining pleasure.  For a listing of restaurants check the Web site at Ocean Grove or call 732-774-1391.
