A Chocolate Affair to Remember

A Chocolate Affair to Remember

This just in: due to concerns about our next winter storm, this event has been moved to Friday, Feb. 10.

Chocolate treats, romantic movies and activities, art shows, crafts, games, prizes, and more will all be part of the sweet First Friday event in downtown Camas, happening from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 3. Downtown businesses will be serving and selling chocolate delights and other romantic gifts, plus offering wine tastings and Valentine’s Day-inspired promotions. What’s not to love? It’s Camas’ 11th annual “Chocolate Affair to Remember,” a very popular First Friday family event (for obvious reasons). Here’s a sampling of the evening’s activities:

  • Guess the candy jar amounts in each participating location and be entered to win the candy and other great Valentine’s themed prizes
  • Art receptions with refreshments at Attic Gallery, Camas Gallery, and Second Story Gallery
  • Painting “love rocks” with The Paint Roller; paint two rocks—one to keep and one to hide in downtown!
