If chocolate is your thing, you do not want to miss this event. The theme for this year's festival is "Berried in Chocolate." The festival is held in the National Guard Armory Building.
The festival begins at noon; the auction begins at 1 p.m. Contestants bring their favorite chocolate creation for judging, tasting and the auction.
Additional items for the auction are donated by individuals and local businesses. Proceeds benefit the Christos House, a women's and children's shelter in West Plains.
Admission is free; 'tasting tickets' are ten for $5.
