Event in South Florida | The International Chocolate Festival
Sometimes it is simply necessary to drive the distance to a must-attend event in South Florida. This weekend I suggest everyone travel south on Interstate 95, across the county line into Dade, and head down to one of my favorite places on the planet- The Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens.
Located at 10901 Old Cutler Road in Coral Gables, the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is hosting her annual event of deliciousness, The Tenth Annual International Chocolate Festival.
The event, an ode to your sweet tooth and a chocoholics pot of gold at the end of a rainbow takes place this Friday January 22, Saturday January 23 and Sunday January 24 from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm.
Visitors to this event in South Florida can sample scrumptious homemade chocolates, watch demonstrations presented by chocolatiers and master chefs (now that is my kind of job!) and listen in on lectures of the art of chocolate making.
Presentations also include a lesson so on the life cycle of the prized cacao plant. Bring along the kiddies who are invited to create their chocolate product at the “Kidway” session.
While at the garden visitors can peruse the Tropical Fruit Pavilion.Other interesting event takes place at the “Wings of the Tropics” exhibit. Butterfly and hummingbird enthusiasts will certainly marvel at this event in South Florida.
Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden offer many pastimes including guided walking tours, tram rides and tours. Year round special events include the world renown Mango Festival and the Orchid Festival.
There are three eateries within the garden. On special days, Mother’s Day Father’s Day and Easter Sunday Brunch is offered at the establishment. From January thru to April, each Thursday evening the park offers events that a meant to sooth the soul. These include yoga classes, musical events and moonlight tours.
