Chilled Cocoa Crawl returns for summer holiday weekend

The third annual Chilled Cocoa Crawl  will take place in Berkeley Springs this Friday, July 5 from 4-8 p.m.

Well known for their December Cocoa Crawl event, Hometown Holidays in Berkeley Springs is excited to present a chilled version again this summer.

Businesses from Berkeley Springs have come together to treat their customers to this fun event, each offering a different flavor of chilled cocoa.

Grab a map, available around town or in the facebook event the week of the crawl, then follow it around to all of the stops.  Event organizers also suggest that you take the time to shop, dine and stay as you support the local small businesses.

“We love the fact that this event brings people together.  Our December events have brought thousands of people downtown, be they local or from surrounding states.  When we announce the Cocoa Crawl date, we’ve heard from hotels that they immediately have people calling for reservations,” said  Jules Happy Rone, owner of Jules Enchanting Gifts.

Hometown Holidays in Berkeley Springs is a local group of shopkeepers helping to create and promote events including the Cocoa Crawl.

“In December I loved seeing everyone walking down the street between the cocoa stops just filled with excitement and joy.  We decided a few years ago we didn’t want to wait a whole year to experience that again!” Rone said.
