Lovers of chocolate and many of those in Kent who support education shared a common destination Feb. 8.

All roads led to Center School on Elizabeth Street that afternoon as the Kent Center School Scholarship Fund committee hosted its 17th annual Chocolate Fest.

The event raises funds for scholarships for the post-secondary education of Kent Center School graduates.

Chocolate Fest patrons paid $5 for a plate of chocolate goodies, and it wasn't uncommon to see happy customers doubling or even tripling up on the purchases.
