LEWISBURG -

If you plan on attending Lewisburg's Annual Chocolate Festival this weekend, and haven't got your tickets yet, now's the time!

The Chocolate Festival starts Saturday at 11 a.m. The event is free to attend, but you'll need a ticket for each tasting. A pack of tickets for $5 dollars, gets you five chocolate tastings throughout the day.

Online ticket sales end Thursday at 5 p.m. Tickets are also available at Downtown Lewisburg locations. Organizers said there's a limited number of tickets, and they're going fast.

More than 4,000 chocolate lovers packed downtown streets last year to satisfy their sweet tooth for the sixth annual Chocolate Festival. A record high 32,000 tasting tickets were sold.
