Latrobe's famous Chocolate Winterfest is back on the calendar after two years in recess due to the pandemic.

The 2022 edition was officially launched yesterday on World Chocolate Day and will run next month from August 11th to 14th.
In the past it's been a one-day festival, usually attracting more than 10,000 people to the town, but the 44 chocolate-themed events at 29 venues this year in and around Latrobe will be spread out over four days.

Latrobe Mayor Peter Freshney has welcomed the event back, which he says will still have the Sunday, August 14th as its main day.
