Funds will benefit the 1837 log schoolhouse restoration project in the village as well as provide new programs for children and family-focused events at Perry Farm Park.

“It was another wonderful winter event and we couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome,” explained Mayor Paul Schore. “Its success is a result of the community here – residents, businesses and visitors – who have embraced and continue to support this event. We are already looking forward to next year.”

Bourbonnais Township Park District Executive Director, Hollice Clark, added, “The BTPD is thrilled to be a part of this successful event. We love the opportunity to showcase some of the fantastic businesses in our community while having a fun filled day indulging in chocolate. It’s a win-win for all. We can’t wait for year five!”

Proceeds from the 2017 and 2018 Chocolate Tour events benefitted the Event and Skate Plaza, a collaborative effort between the Village of Bourbonnais and Bourbonnais Township Park District.
