Kids enjoy the rare moment of permitted indulgence as they compete in the festival’s Chocolate Pie Eating Contest.

An estimated 2,500 are expected to attend the Belmont Shore Chocolate Festival to enjoy a wide array of chocolate treats offered by nearly two-dozen Belmont Shore businesses. The culinary event will take place Saturday, Feb. 6 from 1pm to 4pm. There is no entry fee for the event– only the cost of tickets used to purchase the chocolate items. Books of twelve tickets are $10 and will be sold the week of the event at La Strada, Mail Boxes Etc. and Sweet Jill’s. Tickets may be purchased during the event in front of Chase Bank, 5200 E. 2nd St.
In addition to the opportunity to consume as much chocolate as possible, attendees may get involved by entering chocolate-themed contests. The Homemade Chocolate Dessert Contest is for those who think they have a recipe for a chocolate dessert worthy of an award. A panel of judges will sample the desserts and choose winners in three categories: Chocolate Cakes & Pies, Chocolate Cookies & Brownies and Unique Chocolate Treats. Entry forms are available on the events page of the Belmont Shore website. It costs $10 per dessert to enter.
Those who would rather eat chocolate than make it are welcome to enter the Chocolate Pie Eating Contest. Contestants will race each other to see who can eat an individual-size chocolate cream pie the fastest. Winners of all contests will be announced at 4pm on Corona Avenue (south of 2nd St.) and will receive trophies.
