GALLERY: Sell-out breakfast kicks off Wunta fun.

WARRNAMBOOL'S Wunta Fiesta kicked off with a sell-out community breakfast this morning.  

Hundreds of people turned out for the breakfast and traditional Undy 500 race on the Civic Green. 

By 8am, the breakfast had almost sold-out, with 40 kilos of sausages being eaten in the first hour.

Wunta Fiesta Chairperson Cartherine Williams said that the great weather had motivated people to attend the event.

"I think it's awesome that the community have come out in force to get the breakfast this morning," Ms Williams said.

"There is a lot on, with school going back, so it's really good for them to make that extra effort to get down before work."

School children of all ages fuelled up on pancakes and bacon and eggs, many of them ready for the first day of term.

Despite only a handful of entrants for the Undy 500, a large crowd lined Liebig Street to see brother and sister Kellie and Ben McLeod win the race for yet another year.

Kellie has won the women's title the past four years, with Ben taking out the men's title two years in a row.

When asked what their secret was, Kellie said that her and her brother were just blessed with good genetics.

The Fiesta continues tonight with a laneway festival in the bottom end of Liebig Street.
