Celebrate chocolate through history, with tastings and hands-on activities. Come experience the rich story of chocolate, starting with a tree: learn how it grows and how cacao seeds are processed to become lusciously smooth chocolate. Sample milk, white, and dark chocolates as you learn about their place in history, and honor the Mexican Day of the Dead custom by grinding chocolate nibs on a traditional Mexican metate and decorating a chocolate skull.

Cost: $5 per person; children 5 and under are free
