A Delicious Chocolate Crawl Through Downtown Dayton
The Dayton Community Development Association is hosting the 3rd annual Dayton Chocolate Crawl on Saturday, February 10th, 2018 from noon – 3pm, at participating businesses in downtown Dayton. Bring your sweetheart or your sweet tooth, buy a $10 passport online or at one of the participating businesses, and enjoy our walkable downtown while tasting complimentary chocolate treats at each stop! Each business will be showcasing their cuisine and wares along with a bite-sized sample of a chocolate treat. All proceeds from the Downtown Chocolate Crawl support the Dayton Community Development Association and community activities for YOU!
Passports for the 3rd Annual “Chocolate Crawl” can be purchased now in our online marketplace! Passports are $10.00 each. Your passport will be mailed to you and then get stamped at each business you visit on February 10th. When your passport is full, you’ll leave your passport at the last spot you visit, where it will be entered into a grand prize drawing for a Gift Basket full of Dayton goods and gift certificates to local businesses!
For fun, take a picture for Facebook or Instagram and tag daytonoregon. #daytonoregon #ChocolateCrawl . Also tag the business you’re in! We will draw from entries for downtown prizes. Show some Valentine spirit! Watch our Facebook page or our website for further information.
