Treat yourself throughout downtown this weekend at the 3rd Annual Chocolate Walk!
The City of Marion’s “Discover Marion Downtown” team has again partnered with Dawn & Brian Conwell, owners of three downtown businesses — True Envy Boutique, Ashley’s Ice Cream Café, and Jigsaw Junction — to bring you this decadent dessert event, all proceeds of which will this year raise funds for downtown Marion’s Community School of the Arts.
There are even more downtown businesses/organizations participating this year for a total of 17 stops along the Chocolate Walk. Each will provide a unique gourmet chocolate for ticket holders to collect along the way, thanks to many sponsors.
