Have Sweet Chocolate Dreams February 2
The sweetest day in Louisville is February 2, but only for those who are at Frazier Hall in Bellarmine University. This is where you’ll find Chocolate Dreams, an annual fundraising event that turns eating chocolate into a good cause. Sounds like a dream come true, right?
The Chocolate Dreams event includes a chocolate competition, where more than 20 culinary experts will challenge each other for sweet victory. They will be offering samples, so you can judge your favorite flavors. Vote on the chocolates you like best to elect the People’s Choice Award winner.
When you want to snack on something other than chocolate, light refreshments will be provided. Take place in a silent auction while you’re there. It’s all for a good cause. All the funds raised will go to GuardiaCare Services. This non-profit organization provides services and care for the disabled and elderly. If you needed a good excuse to break your diet for sweet chocolate dreams, now you’ve got it.
In the Neighborhood
It all takes place from 6 pm to 9 pm at 2001 Newburg Road. Bellarmine has a pretty and sprawling campus within easy reach of several Louisville attractions, including the zoo. There are many Louisville neighborhoods near Bellarmine, including historic Deer Park.
Most of this community was developed before WWII, and you can see the history in a casual tour of the neighborhood. The Bullock Clifton House dates to 1834. A much newer feature of the neighborhood is the deer statues. Keep an eye out, and you’ll see them scattered throughout the community. Deer Park has schools and businesses, but it’s mostly homes. Families of all types live in Deer Park. Bellarmine is considered to be part of the neighborhood, but the college and the community manage to exist in harmony together.
You’ll get a good look at the neighborhood when you go to Bellarmine to taste chocolates. You may find that Deer Park is a dream come true, too.
