Chocolate Lover's enjoyed a day of chocolate, shopping, chocolate, fun photographs, and more chocolate!


Participants started at the Lang Building and registered to participate.  All participants received a bag filled with coupons and other fun goodies.  Every other participant received free Main Street Money, Valentine's gifts, or free gift certificates. 


Participants then started by taking fun, free photographs in the photo booth and spun the KWBE/KUTT cash wheel and ate tasty chocolate dipped strawberries. 


The rest of the day was filled with participants visiting all 20 businesses and getting free, homemade chocolate, and using their coupons to shop, shop, shop!






Main Street Beatrice hosted the first ever Chocolate Lovers Shopping Day Extravaganza on Saturday, February 5th.  The weather was perfect  for all the participants who came out to enjoy a day of sampling chocolates and shopping downtown.  We are so excited at the enormous success of this promotion and cannot wait to start planning next years event.  In addition to chocolate, coupons, and shopping Main Street Beatrice gave away ten $10 in Main Street Money as well as 6 bottles of delicious Chocolate Wine.  Some of our winners include Kim Seggerman, Barb Valasek, and Diane Vicars.   Participants had an extra chance to win before they set out on their chocolate crawl with the KWBE cash wheel.  One lucky participant won $50!


Finally, congratulations to our Grand Prize Winner Bess Lantz.  The Valentine’s Basket included:  Night for 2 at the Kensington, $30 to Back Alley Eatery, $20 to VIP Lounge, $30 to a Touch of Class, $30 to Steel Magnolia, a 1lb Chocolate Bar, and a bottle of Chocolate Wine.
