Enjoy more than 70 chocolate vendors with everything from decadent truffles and handcrafted chocolates to unusual treats at the I Love Chocolate Fest this weekend. Boat parades are a time-honored tradition in communities across the country. Enjoy the bright boats at the Huntington Harbor of Lights Boat Parade on Saturday. Create patriotic crafts all weekend long at The Whaling Museum for your favorite veteran or to display at home.
