AND DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE CHOCOLATE!!!! :)
The Chocolate Festival is the largest fundraiser of the year for St. Mary's. Thanks to the many generous donors, the festival is able to remain affordable for families to enjoy while raising the funds necessary to support the school :) Come on down and show your support...and enjoy some delicious chocolate!
And don't forget about our four legged friends! (not horses this time, lol) The St. Mary's Chocolate festival works with the Aiken SPCA and sponsor a pet food drive as part of the Chocolate Festival. The SPCA will also bring adoptable animals to the festival. You may just find your next pet here :)
AND......TAKE A HORSE AND CARRIAGE RIDE THROUGH OUR HISTORIC DOWNTOWN (to support St.Mary's) !
Lucky for St. Mary's - the average American eats 11 pounds of chocolate a year!! (The Swiss have us beat...averaging 22 pounds each per year...wow!!) Last year St. Mary's cleared $50k from this event!! Not too shabby :) Come on out and enjoy some chocolate!
See you there :) Festivities start at 9am. (this is an all-day event!!!) 138 Fairfield St - Downtown Aiken
