The 7th Annual Chocolate Lovers Festival took place last Saturday on the Square in Downtown Lexington and hundreds of people came out to enjoy a day “seasoned” with one of our favorite foods. Lexington’s Chamber of Commerce has hosted this event each year, recognizing some of our community’s best bakers and cooks. It is an event that delights the young and the old every year. We sure hope you didn’t miss the fun!
