Chocolate Festivals and more this Valentine’s Day Weekend!
If you don’t have flowers, chocolates and restaurant reservations yet, festival fans, now is the time to get those done for this upcoming Valentine’s Day Weekend. Of course, whether you are in a relationship of some form or not, you can always take advantage of some of the chocolate-themed festivals going on this weekend. Some of those chocolate festivals are even paired with adult beverages, such as wine and whiskey.
And if you don’t like chocolate?
Well there are Mac and Cheese Festivals, Oyster Festivals, Garlic Festivals, and even Maple Syrup Festivals. But it doesn’t have to be all about eating. You could celebrate Sturgeons, go festive for Bats, and embrace the winter with Winter festivals, Ice festivals and a Yeti festival.
There are plenty of options (depending on the state).
Big festival states this weekend are Florida and Michigan with Indiana, New York, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin looking pretty good for a February weekend.
Here are some festivals to check out in each state…
Prattville’s Mardi Gras Celebration
Treasure Coast Pirate Festival (Fort Pierce), South Florida Garlic Fest (Wellington)
Atlanta Oyster Festival
Rockton Yeti Fest
Hoosier Chocolate Fest (Westfield)
Peace, Love and Hippies Indoor Festival (Lapeer)

Wherever you are in the next few days, be careful in this upcoming weather. It will be over soon and then, hopefully, you’ll be able to check out some of these festivals right after.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
Love, Peace and Festival Grease!
