Hershey characters stand in front of the Carrousel at Hersheypark, which opens for the season Friday, May 3, 2019.

One year ago today, Hersheypark announced a 23-acre, $150 million expansion known as Chocolatetown.

Expected to open this summer, Hersheypark recently released drone footage of snow covered rides and rollercoasters to mark the occasion. Check out the video below.

The Chocolatetown expansion is set to include a 10,000 square foot gift shop, a full service restaurant and Candymonium, the theme park's fifteenth rollercoaster.
