Salon du Chocolat Paris 2019 Opening Night

Salon du Chocolat Paris - Opening Night 

Hello my chocolate loving friends.  I've just returned form the Salon du Chocolat in Paris.  Now that I'm home I wish I could have spent just a few more days there. In my life, there is almost never enough chocolate.

The city celebrates.  There is evidence of the Salon du Chocolate everywhere in Paris.  Signs are on busses, in the subway, and even in local shops.  I absolutely loved seeing the high quality advertising reminding me of how this city embraces and supports the event.

The kickoff.  Opening night hundreds of people lined up on a chilly night waiting for the doors to open.  Once past security, everyone was greeted with a flute of champagne.  The stage featured a live band and a fashion show with models in cacao and chocolate themed costumes.  Doesn't a fun fashion show seem appropriate for an even in Paris?  Look closely at the dresses, one even has live doves IN the dress.
