But why a chocolate festival in Hamilton? On September 27, 1955, a train was diverted from the main track, causing it to speed through a coal shed and crash to the ground. The good news was that no one was injured and the great news was that Nestle' Crunch Bars, Chocolate Chips and Nestle' Quik were spilled everywhere! Children rushed to the scene of "The Chocolate Wreck" to snatch up all the chocolate they could!
Chocolate and trains are the main themes of this FREE event, which provides tons of family fun and artistic, cultural, and educational entertainment.
