The Village Square merchants are holding their annual Chocolate Crawl this Saturday.

Shoppers will have a chance to shop locally at several businesses and have the opportunity to win a grand prize gift basket. As shoppers follow the "Hearts on the Village Square," they will receive a passport and sweet treats from each business. Their passport will be stamped at each business they visit. Once the passport is completed it can be dropped off at a participating business for a chance to win the gift basket. The basket will contain gift cards or gifts from the participating merchants. The drawing will be held at the Mexico Chamber of Commerce at noon Monday, February 13.

New this year will be #DineInMexMO. The following restaurants Andrea C., Aussie Outback and Down Under, Dogwoods Jr., and Hugo's Italian Ristorante will be handing out "Golden Tickets" to any adult who dines with them on Saturday. Additional entries will be given to customers who take a picture of themselves eating at one of the participating restaurants and post it on the VSA Facebook page with the #DineInMexMO hashtag. Entries are for a chance to win #DineInMexMO hashtag gift cards to the participating restaurants.

Participating businesses include: Coke Plant Antiques, Downtown Pet Stop, Color Me Bleu, Scrapbook Store & More Gold Crown, Merchandise in Motion, ReMax On The Move, Martha Rose Gifts & Home Decor, Merle Norman Cosmetics & Gift Gallery, Melody's Quality Jewelry, Jim Stubblefield Antiques, Cole Street Antiques, Vapor Locker and The Sparkly Pig.
