 Chocolate Day celebrations, March, 6-8, 2010,
Rynok Square, square in front of Opera and Ballet Theatre and Art Palace, (Kopernika str., 17, Lviv)

What could be a better way to mark International Women’s Day that by hosting a scrumptious chocolate festival? Clearly the officials inside Lviv City Council responsible for the city’s ever-expanding array of holidays could think of nothing more appropriate and have designated early March as a time to celebrate Lviv’s long tradition of delicious desserts and chocolate treats. Only in Lviv is this sweettoothed delight known by the special name of ‘Chokoliada’, and this year’s three day chocolate festival will also feature performances from the Dobrovolskiy Circus and Willy Wonka style chocolate fountains along with a contest of chocolate sculptures. But most enticing of all will be the mountains of chocolates on offer to the general public!
