Lititz Chocolate Walk mice

Chocolate mice are always popular treats along the Lititz Chocolate Walk. Tickets for the Oct. 12 fundraising event go on sale Monday, July 1.

 Before you put the Lititz Chocolate Walk on your October calendar, you might want to put a note on Monday, July 1.

That’s when tickets go on sale for the popular fall event in which a variety of chocolate treats are served at more than 25 businesses throughout downtown Lititz.

The 18th annual Lititz Chocolate Walk is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12.

Tickets for the event are limited to 2,000, and the event always sells out.

Tickets bought online are $42.50. Tickets bought in person are $40, at such locations as Wilbur Chocolate, Schreiber Pediatric and the Lititz and Manheim Township public libraries.
