Belmont Shore Chocolate Festival packed with fans

LONG BEACH >> Sweet tooth’s were being satisfied up and down Second Street on Saturday at the 10th annual Belmont Shore Chocolate Festival.

The chocolaty event is hosted by the Belmont Shore Business Association, and Executive Director Dede Rossi has been heading it up for four years.

“Any event we do down in Belmont Shore is to get people down the street to see what we have to offer,” said Rossi, who admits to being more of a vanilla girl. “We’ve had less than 20 restaurants in the past, but now we’ve got 30 restaurants participating.”
