Kid at Festival of ChocolateHey Tampa Bay, Melissa back again to give you guys a wrap up of Tampa’s Festival of Chocolate. This year was the first year that Tampa hosted the festival and it was definitely a success!

Over 10,000 sweet tooths were satisfied during the 3 day event hosted by MOSI. The building was jam packed! Award-winning pastry chefs and choclatiers  filled the museum, hosting interactive displays, and sharing techniques and tricks of the trade. On Saturday TV personalities, Charley Belcher of Good Day Tampa Bay and Lissette Campos of ABC Action News took the stage as judges. Radio personalities, Orlando Davis of Wild 94.1 and Seth Kushner of 97X were also present.

Guests and employees of MOSI alike were excited about the turnout. Tanya Vomacka, Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Relations for MOSI, said “We are honored to be the first venue in Tampa to host The Festival of Chocolate.  It was a great success across the board and we are looking forward to bringing it back to MOSI next year.”

I speak on behalf of Tampa when I say, we are looking forward to bringing it back too! That’s a wrap folks, but make sure to keep checking back here for more about Tampa Bay Area Events-because if Tampa hosts the festival again, you can be sure to find that info here!
