Need something to do with your love - or a friend - over Valentine's Day weekend? We have the perfect event! Tampa is hosting its 4th annual chocolate festival on Saturday, February 16. 

As you can expect there is going to be a lot of chocolate - and not just in desserts. As the event detail explains, local gourmet food trucks and vendors will be cooking both desserts, entrées with chocolate, and drinks to pair with your dish. You will be able to find all manners and forms of chocolate here.

So what exactly does that mean? Good question, here are some photos from previous years that might help paint a picture of what to expect in your mind:
