Experience a chocolate paradise on the Paradise/Magalia ridge nestled among tall green pines in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and overlooking the Sacramento Valley.

It's in this community that strikes the perfect balance between its Gold Country historical past and all the comforts of today's living that a small group of individuals with big hearts and a love of chocolate are coming together once again to plan the eighth annual international award-winning Paradise Chocolate Fest benefiting non-profit youth organizations on the Paradise Ridge.

Past winner of two international awards at the Retail Confectioners International Chocolatiers Convention and Expo held in Hershey, Pennsylvania, the Paradise Chocolate Fest is the place to indulge your love of chocolate. The 2013 Paradise Chocolate Fest attracted more than 5,000 attendees and the 2014 Paradise Chocolate Fest promises to be even more exciting by offering plenty of sugar-coated fun for the whole family.

 The Fest will be held Saturday, May 10 at Terry Ashe Park on the Skyway in Paradise from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Fest features Chocolate Candy Land where you can dip into decadence at the large chocolate fountain or visit chocolate booths and professional Chocolatiers with countless chocolate delicacies, desserts and confections for sale. Visitors can stroll down Bittersweet Lane or walk up Sugar Tooth Street while savoring delicious chocolate treats. Fest attendees may also enjoy a blast from the past by visiting fifties themed Lollipop's Old Fashion Ice Cream Shoppe, or simply taking a walk through the park and enjoying the musical entertainment, fine art, craft, commercial and community booths and a wide range of food selections.

 A very special highlight of this year's festivities will be "Chocolate Royale!" the crowning of the 2014 Paradise Chocolate Fest Queen and King with a sweet celebration for all to enjoy.

 Young Fest goers will have great fun visiting Chocolate Fest Kidz-Zone including giant inflatables, carnival games, costumed characters, clowns, face painting, arts & craft projects, hands-on exhibits and demonstrations and musical entertainment.
