A First Time Event is coming to Steubenville this Month!

Historic Fort Steuben will be offering a new tasty event, the Sweetheart Chocolate Walk, on Saturday, February 16 from noon to 4pm in downtown Steubenville.

This is a popular activity in many communities that is both a fundraiser and a fun way to break up the winter doldrums.

Here’s how it works:  A person purchases a $20 ticket which will entitle the holder to a chocolate treat at each of the participating businesses. Their ticket will be stamped at each site, then participants will drop off their stamped tickets at the Fort Steuben Visitor Center to be eligible for a drawing for a $100 gift card for dinner at JC Wine Cellars in East Springfield.

Each business chooses the kind of chocolate treat it will offer so there should be a nice variety to take home. Although there is one treat per ticket offered at each site, a couple or family can participate by sharing the goodies.

The businesses that will be in the Walk located on or near 4th Street are:

BookMarx Bookstore, Leonardo’s Coffeehouse, Steubenville Popcorn Company, Drosselmeyer’s Nutcracker Shoppe, the Prodigal Daughter, Mike’s Sweeper Center, Yorgo’s, Malta’s Pizza, the Grand Theater, Ashley’s Home Décor & More, the Antique Warehouse and the Visitor Center.

Half the proceeds from the event will go towards the educational programs at Historic Fort Steuben.

Only 50 tickets will be sold and are available at the Fort Steuben Visitor Center or by calling 740-283-1787.
