OROVILLE, Calif. -- One of the sweetest festivals in the state, the Paradise Chocolate Fest returned to the North State Saturday hosted by Gold Country Casino Resort in Oroville.

It was a fun-filled day full of chocolate goodness. Admission was $5 and kids four and under entered for free. Families enjoyed free chocolate samples and chocolate pie and ice cream eating contests. There was also a "Kidz-Zone" with a bounce house, super slide and many carnival games.  

Youth on the Ridge Community Foundation, Inc. holds the Paradise Chocolate Fest every year.  The foundation is  dedicated to benefit non-profit organizations which provide educational, enrichment, recreational and leadership opportunities to youth on the Paradise Ridge.

In the past nine years, the Fest has distributed over $200,000 in financial support to 45 organizations serving Paradise youth. They hope to raise more this year given the added support from the Camp fire.

Achieve Charter School, Achieve Charter High School, Boy Scouts Troop 316, Boys Scouts Troop 770, Children’s Community Charter School, Cub Scouts Pack 316, Cub Scouts Pack 770, Girl Scouts, Gold Nugget Museum, Paradise Elementary PTO, Paradise Elks Lodge, Paradise Friends of the Library, PHS Academic Decathlon Team, PHS Athletic Teams, PHS Link Crew, PHS Student Leadership, Paradise Host Lions Club, Paradise Intermediate Evergreen 6 Academy, Paradise Intermediate School Web Program, Paradise Junior Football, Paradise Piranhas Swim Team, Paradise Recreation & Park District, Paradise Rotary Interact, Paradise Unified School District, Ponderosa Elementary PTO, Rainbow Girls, Reading Pals Paradise, Ridgeview High School Rangers.

December began on a beautiful note for northern California with plentiful sunshine, seasonably cool lows and warmer than average highs. Much of wednesday will be similar to today, but clouds will stream into our sky late in the day.
