Long Grove merchants teamed up to create a new free, family-friendly event Saturday -- a Cocoa Crawl.

Guests started at the Visitor's Center, picking up a map of 19 participating businesses serving something cocoa-related -- from hot cocoa beverages to hot chocolate snacks.

Participants got to vote on their favorite and be entered into a raffle for donated prizes.
