Bellerose Christmas season is time for chocolate

December 2, 2016 by  

The Chocolate Expo will be coming soon to one of our local museums.

This event is so popular that it will issue timed-entry tickets and have a second entry point to even out the traffic flow. More than 100 local, regional, and international vendors will be offering sales and tasting of chocolates, cheeses, gelato, baked goods, and specialty items.

There will be plenty of traditional chocolate goodies for sale and some unique offerings, such as chocolate-covered pickles, and bacon and fondue mountains, along with chocolate-related demonstrations, entertainment, and lectures. Proceeds will go to the museum’s education and preservation programs.

Bellerose children will get to enjoy the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car, which will be on display. Pictures taken of your little ones in front of the car will make interesting subjects for future poster printing.

Tickets may be purchased online for $15 adults and $10 for children ages 2 to 12, or adult tickets will be $20 and children $15 at the door. All tickets include admission to the Cradle of Aviation Museum exhibits and the Nassau County Fighters’ Museum. The organizers suggest getting tickets as soon as possible, as the event sold out and had to turn people away last year.

The event is slated for Sunday, December 11 from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm at the Cradle of Aviation Museum on Charles Lindbergh Blvd., Garden City.
