Aroostook Relay for Life hosts 5th annual Chocolate Festival

CARIBOU, Maine - Bakers, chocolate lovers and even the Easter Bunny made an appearance in Caribou this weekend, to take part in the County's Relay for Life Chocolate Festival.

The festival featured ALL things chocolate.

This is the fifth year the event has taken place, and the first time it has been held at the Caribou Middle School.

But the festival isn't just about the fun and games. It also raises money to support the American Cancer Society.

"Every year it gets better and better," said Event Leader Cuppy Johndro. "The first year we raised a little over a thousand. It's funny, every year we've raised to the year of the amount so we're hoping to raise 5,000 this year."

Relay for Life helps raise money to fight cancer, and to support survivors and those currently battling the disease. Johndro says that it can sometimes be difficult to raise money in this day and age, but they've received a tremendous amount of community support.

Relay for Life will take place on June 16th.
