While sports fans celebrated the Wichita State Shockers 33-0 win in basketball, chocolate enthusiasts got together to celebrate Wichita’s premier chocolate showdown. 

On Saturday, March 8, Exploration Place hosted its 8th Annual Death by Chocolate Event with a special “Science” themed evening.

Participants browsed 18 different stations where they could partake in everything from chocolate cookies and cupcakes to hor dourves and wine pairings. Among the vendors were several local chocolate shops and restaurants in Wichita.

Between indulging in chocolate sweets and sampling baked goods, guests could also enjoy the evening’s entertainment which included a human slot machine, wine toss, photo booths, and music by the Cessna Jazz Band and Trevor Stewart. The evening rounded out with a silent auction.

Proceeds from Death by Chocolate benefited educational programs at Exploration Place.
