To spread joy and sweetness during the holiday season, Hoffman’s Chocolates is hosting the Hoffman’s Chocolates Holiday Extravaganza presented by Florida Blue at its Greenacres location (5190 Lake Worth Road) from Friday, Nov. 24 to Saturday, Dec. 30. As part of its commitment to supporting the community, the six-week-long celebration will feature a stunning 40-foot holiday tree adorned with 15,000 lights, over 800 ornaments and a 5-foot 3D tree topper on the front lawn of the store, providing a picturesque backdrop for visitors to take photos. In addition, guests can participate in chocolate-making classes, view and vote on holiday wreaths, take photos with Santa on select weekend nights, and enjoy other exciting holiday activities.
The well-known chocolatier has planned a celebratory tree lighting ceremony on Friday, Nov. 24, starting at 6 p.m. (The tree will be lit at 6:30 p.m.) Along with local dignitaries, Hoffman’s Chocolates will ceremoniously light the tree. Attendees can take photos with Santa Claus, enjoy family-friendly activities such as face painting and holiday music, and sample seasonal desserts from Hoffman’s Chocolates. The first one hundred guests to purchase at Hoffman’s Chocolate on the night of the event will be gifted a free twelve-inch gold or silver nutcracker.
Following the event, the public is invited by Hoffman’s Chocolates to visit the store at their leisure to view a captivating 40-foot holiday tree, which will remain illuminated during store hours. Visitors are also encouraged to check out the festive nonprofit wreath displays, participate in chocolate-making classes, and indulge in delicious gourmet chocolates and confections. On select Friday and Saturday evenings in December, from 6 to 9 p.m., the community will also have the opportunity to take photos with Santa. The dates for this event include Dec. 8 and 9, Dec. 15 and 16, and Dec. 22 and 23.
