Complete the Valentine’s Day Chocolate Challenge

Does anything say Valentine’s Day better than chocolate? We don’t think so! Without further ado, we are challenging YOU to a chocolate challenge!

All you have to do is show photo or video proof of you eating chocolate from three out of these six incredible local businesses, post your photo/video to Instagram (@visitknoxco) or Facebook (Visit Vincennes/Knox County), tag us, and use our hashtags #visitvincennes and #visitvincennes. On February 14th we’ll pick a winner for a $25 gift card to Charlie’s Carmel & Candy Shop.

We can’t wait to see what you post!
