BENDIGO'S Easter Festival started with a bang tonight.
A spectacular fireworks display from the Victorian Showmen's Guild attracted good attendance as it light up the Bendigo sky.
Vibrant reds, yellows, greens and blues sparked and popped across the black backdrop of the night sky over Tom Flood Sports Centre.
Those in attendance were suitably impressed with the showcase.
A twilight screening of the family movie, The Croods, followed.
The night-time entertainment capped a big day of activities at Carnival Central and across the city.
It was the start of what is sure to be an eggsellent weekend in central Victoria.
