The Love BITES Chocolate Fest

This year, I'm hosting my SEVENTH Chocolate Fest. SEVEN! It's completely crazy to me that I've been a teen librarian now for seven years. I'm also in my very first rebuilding year, but that's a topic for another time.

The Chocolate Fest continues to be my most popular event – last year we had over seventy teens come. What shocks me about this event in particular, though, is that I get the largest variety of kids at this event, and that's why I don't mind that this is also by far my most expensive program.

With the Vampire Academy film being released the same week, & many of my teens being HUGE fans, I knew I needed to do something. But after doing five Twilight films, I really wasn't feeling doing yet another vampire program (nor did I really want to read Richelle Mead's novels. They might be really fun, but I'm personally kind of vampire-d out). So! The Chocolate Fest this year really BITES, and we're adding a few vampire elements to our usual mix of chocolate & break-up song videos.

  • Everybody will get vampire fangs when they walk in.
  • I'll have mini Vampire Academy posters for everyone (I just print these out)
  • We'll do some vampire trivia, with books, movies, & lore
  • All the chocolate stuff will be red – strawberries, chocolate covered cherries, etc
  • Red fruit punch!
  • I'm on the look out for the just the right craft this year. We've done mini voodoo dolls two years in a row now, so I think I might do something along the lines of a vampire kokeshi doll, a bottle necklace of “blood,” or the vampire bite necklaces.
