Servin’ up a 2nd scoop of the Chocolate Tour!
You’re invited to join the Village of Bourbonnais and the Bourbonnais Township Park District for another year of this hugely popular event! February 3, 2018 has been set aside for the Second Annual “A Chocolate Tour” in our Village of Friendship.
Bourbonnais is once again the destination for residents and guests to explore our quaint village and fine businesses. We believe you will want to join us to host a “Stop” on the Tour ~ or ~ participate as an event sponsor.
The Tour will be structured as it was last year with folks visiting a variety of businesses where they will experience chocolate treats and surprises, all while learning more about you and the products and services you provide.
Why tasty chocolate concoctions? Well, Valentine’s Day of course! This will be a great opportunity to welcome the Valentine’s Day Season while showcasing our business community which is oh, so special to the Village of Bourbonnais.
The goal for this event is to turn 35 local businesses into Chocolate Tour Stops to be visited by your current and potentially new customers between 12:00 noon and 5:00 p.m. We encourage neighboring businesses to work together to create a stop.

Bourbonnais will begin the $10 Million sewer project. The Village of Bourbonnais will begin construction of the most expensive project in village history, as it prepares for the new Interstate 57 interchange and a 1,200-acre business and industrial park at Bourbonnais Parkway.
The board unanimously accepted a $10.1 million contract with Kankakee Valley Construction Company Inc. to complete the first phase of a six-mile sewer system. Kankakee Valley Construction will complete the first 4 miles, which will run from the Perry Farm area through town to St. George Road.
Construction begins this summer (June) with the project expected to be completed by next year. The second phase of the project, which village officials believe will cost about $1.5 million, will connect to the interceptor at St. George Road and run to Bourbonnais Parkway.
"We are looking at the new interchange being complete by summer of 2018," Mayor Paul Schore said. "We want to things in place and utilities ready to go for future businesses and industries to come in."
