LEWISBURG – A Greenbrier County community is ringing in spring with a celebration all about a decadent dessert.

Lewisburg is hosting its 8th-annual Chocolate Fest this weekend. Officials say the popularity of the event continues to grow and they're expecting more than 4,000 folks to tour around the city sampling not only chocolate, but a wide variety of delectable delights.

Director Kara Dense says it’s going to be a fun, and bigger than ever.

“You'll find everything from cake, to ice cream, to brownies, to several different gourmet chocolates.”

Dense says you should prepare for the best – lot of delicious delights – but prepare for the worst – a lot of leftovers.

“Bring a baggie, a little bit of Tupperware with you because you want to be able to get as much as you can.”

Proceeds from the Chocolate Fest will benefit the United Way of Greenbrier Valley.
