GREENVILLE The 12th annual Chocolate Festival in the Moosehead Lake Region just happens to land on one of the biggest chocolate days of the year, Valentine's Day. The 2016 Moosehead Region Chocolate Festival will feature a silent auction, a kids corner and of course chocolate.

'You can't get much better than good, quality chocolate,' said Angela Arno, executive director of the Moosehead Lake Region Chamber of Commerce. 'Over the 12 years of this festival, it has become obvious to us that people from near and far like to celebrate chocolate. It comes in different forms, with different pairings, and for different occasions, but it is always enjoyable. Chocolate lovers and casual chocolate consumers will all find something to enjoy at the Chocolate Festival.'

The silent auction will feature many items up for grabs, including all-inclusive weekend excursions in the Moosehead Lake Region. A kids' corner will feature children-specific food, games, and prizes, as well as special give-a-ways for the youngsters. Attendees will have the opportunity to sample 12 items from a selection of more than 40 different chocolate treats.

The 12th Annual Chocolate Festival will take place from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 14 at the Masonic Temple on Pritham Ave. in Greenville. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for kids. Tickets are available at the door.

'What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than surrounded by chocolate and chocolate lovers?' asked Arno. 'Even for a moderate fan of chocolate, this festival is always a lot of fun and gives us an opportunity to gather together as a community and welcome in visitors from away in the middle winter, while showcasing what the Moosehead Region is all about.'

The 12th Annual Chocolate Festival is presented by the Moosehead Lake Chamber of Commerce. For more information about the Chocolate Festival, or the Moosehead Lake Region, call (207) 695-2702 or visit
