Quincy’s Yum Factory is celebrating their first anniversary with a MAJOR celebration on Saturday, September 22. The popular sweets shop is following in the lead of one Willy Wonka with a themed party complete with golden tickets, free samples, face painting, cupcake decorating, costumed characters from the beloved book turned movie, and plenty more for kids of all ages (or bedridden grandparents).

Michael was there just this morning to see just what was in store and it is definitely worth stopping in if you’re out and about over the weekend. No chocolate rivers or golden goose bad egg detectors or weird terrifying boat rides that I’m aware of, so it should be decidedly safer than Wonka’s actual funhouse of terror (although you may see an Oompa Loompa or two).

The Yum Factory is located at 700 Maine Street and the festivities run from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm. Congratulations on your first anniversary, Yum Factory! Here’s to many more.
