Everything is coming up chocolate in Morehead City this February – and no, it's not just for Valentine's Day. Vendors will converge on the Crystal Coast Civic Center on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 3-4 for the annual Carolina Chocolate Festival – a wonderful reason to indulge in a little sweetened fun in advance of the holiday.
From chocolate pudding eating contests to a slew of vendors, this annual event is a great way to see (and taste) all the ways that the sugary confection can add a little sweetness to your life.
On Saturday, Feb. 3, get an early start at the annual Cocoa 5K Fun Run, planned for 8am on at the CMAST Building on the campus of Carteret Community College. Registration opens at 7am. Participants may register onsite prior to the race or in advance by visiting the website. Costumes are encouraged and awards will be presented to the best.
