A Chocolate Tour

2019 Sponsors
Servin’ up a 3rd Scoop of Chocolate Tour!

You are invited to join the Village of Bourbonnais and the Bourbonnais Township Park District for another year of this hugely popular event!  February 2, 2019 has been set aside for the Third Annual “A Chocolate Tour” in our Village of Friendship.

Bourbonnais is once again the destination for residents and guests to explore our quaint village and fine businesses.  We believe you will want to join in to host a “Stop” on the Tour ~ or ~ participate as an event sponsor.

The Tour will be structured as it was last year with folks visiting a variety of businesses where they will experience chocolate treats and surprises, all while learning more about you and the products and services you provide.

Why tasty chocolate concoctions?  Well, Valentine’s Day of course!  This will be a great opportunity to welcome the Valentine’s Day Season while showcasing our business community which is oh, so special to the Village of Bourbonnais.

The goal for this event is to turn 35 local businesses into Chocolate Tour Stops to be visited by your current and potentially new customers between 12:00 noon and 5:00 p.m.  We encourage neighboring businesses to work together to create a stop.

We want businesses to publicize their goods and services by offering a chocolate or chocolate themed item that compliments their business as a giveaway. Prepackaged chocolate goodies will make everything run as smooth as a cup of hot chocolate!

Please take a moment to look over the accompanying information and learn more about how to become a “Stop on the Tour” or support this event by being one of our limited sponsors.  Deadline to register is December 14, 2018.  Please email or call Sharon Richardson with any questions - or 815-933-9905.
