We're gonna take over a portion of the parking lot by the skating lagoon and boat house. Seasons of Bowness has two separate YYC Hot Chocolates, a virgin and a boozy hot chocolate. More details available here. In addition to Hot Chocolate and trucks there is also a firepit, skating and curling. Park and restaurant open 'till 10. The "market" closes at 5 but we've confirmed that we'll still be able to get some cocoa in ya.

YYC Hot Chocolate Fest is a delicious and friendly competition to find Calgary’s Best Hot Chocolate. What makes the fest even sweeter? All of the yummy goodness supports a wonderful cause, with a portion of the proceeds from each purchase being donated to support Calgary Meals on Wheels. The YYC Hot Chocolate Fest began in 2012 and in six years has evolved into a city wide festival of hot chocolate. Raising a grand total of $64,262.81 to support Calgarians in need of nutritious meals delivered to their homes. The fest aims to promote and encourage support of local business and Calgary Meals on Wheels by rallying the city to participate in drinking hot chocolate that builds community!

Last year was at Monogram Coffee and the turn out was pretty good. Granted the weather was a little nicer but I'm hoping we can pull off roughly the same numbers this year. We'll also be collecting change and funds to donate to Meals on Wheels directly. Not including the money raised by buying hot chocolate, UO also raised an additional $100 dollars for Meals on Wheels last year. Good job group. Hopefully we can do even better this year! 

 Money donated last yea
