Huntly's family fun day was booked out as families flocked to Strauch Reserve for some COVID safe entertainment.
A climbing wall and hula hooping were among the activities on offer during the free event, which took place on Sunday.
The event has drawn huge crowds in the past.
Dancing, painting, games and music were back this year, but COVID safe requirements meant attendees had to book in advance to attend the free event.
The City of Greater Bendigo, the Bendigo Northern District Community Enterprise and Fosterville Mines were among those who made it happen.
Huntly CFA and the Huntly Lions Club also played starring roles.
Attendees took the opportunity to acquaint themselves with CFA gear and fire trucks.
Some of the younger attendees seized the moment to live out their firefighting dreams, learning a few skills from Huntly's firefighters.
Other popular features included a climbing wall.
Meanwhile, Maldon seemed set to welcome visitors to its 13th annual antique fair, which was planned for the weekend.
