Chocolate lovers from around Kodiak converged on the convention center Saturday night to indulge in one of their favorite things. Offerings ranged from chocolate truffles to chocolate dipped garlic olives, and prize winning jalapeño chocolate cookies.
Participants tried them all in good cheer as they helped raise money for the Kodiak Island Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
The other event of the evening that has become almost as popular as the chocolate tasting was the Halibut Tail Art Auction. This year’s auction featured 15 whale tail forms reworked using wool, beach finds, paints and other varied media to create one-of-a-kind Kodiak style art.
