Chocolate Affair at historic McIlvoy House @ McIlvoy House
Feb 2 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

Visit historic McIlvoy House for Chocolate and Arvada history!  Here you will find Chocolate Vendors displaying their wares and offering a taste, with all proceeds benefiting Ralston House, an organization that helps children deal with family traumas

You can also find the answer to the clue for the Treasure Hunt – always an intriguing historical artifact that reminds us that life in the “old days” was very different from our lives today.  Over the decades, there have been many inventions that make today’s life so much easier, and yet those early inventions were such simple solutions that sometimes one wonders why they aren’t still used today!

Cost:  free – no charge for visiting.  For a modest contribution to Ralston House, you can taste wonderful Chocolate concoctions from local vendors.
