NORFOLK -- The Virginia Arts Festival brings back its celebration of all things chocolate.

Later this month at the Virginia Chocolate Festival, you can sample chocolate from around the world from some of the area's finest chocolatiers, restaurants, and retailer. There also will be free chocolate-making and cooking demonstrations for sampling.
