The Greatest Spectacle in Tasting

Greatest Spectacle 1

Although Indianapolis is known for hosting the “greatest spectacle in racing,”  visitors to Kokomo can experience “The Greatest Spectacle in Tasting” on Saturday, May 16 from 6:00-9:00 p.m.  Besides a delicious selection of food by great local restaurants (which in itself is a great spectacle,) there will be much more offered to provide an excellent evening of entertainment.

In addition to over 30 restaurants offering a sampling of their highlighted cuisines, over 100 different wine and microbrew samples will be available to taste.  The Smooth Operators, a “Docs that Rock” band, will provide some great live entertainment.  There will also be raffle baskets and a huge silent auction with fantastic prizes, such as a gas grill, jewelry, and an autographed photo of Peyton Manning. 

Greatest Spectacle 2

Tickets are $30 in advance or $35 at the door.  Proceeds will benefit Bona Vista Programs.  The Greatest Spectacle in Tasting will be held at the grounds of Bona Vista, 1220 E. Laguna Street in Kokomo.  For more information on the event or to purchase tickets, call 765-457-8273 or visit their website.

I look forward to the month of February every year.  Not only because I love Valentine’s Day, but because of Kokomo’s annual Chocolate Celebration.  This event is truly a dream come true for chocolate lovers and one of my personal favorites!  The 7th Annual Chocolate Celebration will be held at the Kokomo Mall on Thursday, Feb. 5.  From 11am-2pm there will be mouth-watering and simply delicious chocolate creations offered by more than 20 local vendors.  Selections will include cakes, brownies, cookies, fudge, chocolate-flavored drinks, and many more.  I have attended the event for several years now and always love the variety and, of course, getting the opportunity to enjoy my fill of chocolate!
