Sweet sounds, sweet tastes: Long Grove Chocolate Festival is back
The sweet aroma of chocolate -- accompanied by the sweet sounds of the Lara Bell Band -- filled the air Friday at the Long Grove Chocolate Festival.
Friday kicked off the popular three-day downtown fest, which returned for the first time since the pandemic.
The Lara Bell Band, with Johnsburg's Lara Bell playing the acoustic guitar and providing vocals, kept fans dancing on Robert Parker Coffin Road for the two-hour set. The fest continues from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. today and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
