The Library is excited to be participating as a Chocolate Stop along this year’s Chocolate Walk route. This very fun event is organized by, and benefits, the North Canton Area Chamber of Commerce.
FAQs from the Chamber of Commerce
How do I buy tickets?
$20 (all ages)
We will sell a maximum of 250 tickets and anticipate that they will sell out.
We expect a minimum of 30 businesses/organizations along the route to participate.
A maximum of 250 community members will enjoy a walking tour of downtown North Canton while gathering chocolate treats from each participating business they visit. Attendees will check in at the chamber office the day of the event to receive their passports, maps and bags. The day will be split into five time slots beginning at 12 p.m. which will allow for smaller groups to move through the walk and still maintain social distancing.
The walk extends from the North Canton Fire Department to Waggoner Chocolates.
We think community is important. We think a vibrant downtown is important. We know chocolate is important. We want to bring it all together in a celebration of our city using this proven model of success.
