2012 Chocolate March

January 27th, 2012 by chuck

The 2012 Tour is Set–Plan Now to Taste Your Way Through B&B Inns of the Valley with Chocolate, Chocolate and More Chocolate!
The 2012 Chocolate March of the Bed & Breakfast Inns of the Scenic St. Croix River Valley is a delectable way to discover the diversity of our Inns.  Review the schedule of Sundays … March 4, 11, 18, and 25 to decide which week to tour.  Purchase tickets in advance for only $26 ($52 value), and “get inside” these beautiful and unique B&Bs and taste your way through the valley. 
New this year are member artists of ArtReach St. Croix displaying and selling items at many of the B&B locations!  Don’t miss the historic sites which are also a tour stop each Sunday.  At the final B&B  visited, you will receive a $20 gift certificate toward a B&B stay or select restaurants.
Order tickets on-line here. Each Sunday of the Chocolate March those tour goers will be eligible for a drawing of two MyMiracle Pillow pillows — a $140 value!  Join the fun and spend a Sunday afternoon (1:00-5:00) in the Valley.
