Port Fairy will turn back the clock across the grand final long weekend, and then rock around it, as the town enjoys three fun filled days of vintage activities.
The Port Fairy Vintage Weekend returns for a second year with an expanded program of events for all ages.
Committee member Dean Robertson said the event is a great way to spend time over the school holidays.
"This has been a great initiative from local businesses and the Port Fairy Tourism Association," Mr Robertson said.
"There are also lots of community groups running their own activities.
"We have expanded the program to make sure we cater for everyone who is in town for the long weekend."
A display of vintage caravans, at the Gardens Caravan Park in Griffith Street, is running for the first time on Saturday.
"We had a few caravans at the vintage car display last year and people responded really well to them," Mr Robertson said.
"This year we have a specific display for the caravans with 25 to 30 set-ups being shown.
"The car show is still running at Railway Place on Sunday, so it's a nice complimentary event."
Mr Robertson said the focus on Sunday is family-friendly events.
"We are trying to keep things free or low cost," he said.
"People can enjoy a family picnic from 11am on Fiddlers Green, with music from Up-Town Cats and displays of rock and roll dancing and the pin-up competition."
The Vintage Pin-up and Best Dressed Competition will head the new events on offer over the weekend.
Pin-up competition organiser Helen Berting said contestants will show off a single outfit, either vintage or reproduction, with styles from the 1940s, 50s or 60s.
"It's the first year the pin-up competition is running," Ms Berting said.
"The pin-up contestants need to be pre-registered and will be doing more of a performance.
"Contestants will have props and a theme, and they will need to do at least five held poses.
"They will need to have authenticity to an era, elegant posing and stage presence, interaction with the crowd and excellent hair and make-up to match."
"Everyone is allowed to be unique and present the best outfit they can."

Ms Berting said an audience-judge best dressed competition will be held alongside the pin-up competition.
"Everyone should bring their friends along to cheer and support them," Ms Berting said.
"We are hoping to have a lot of people enter the best dressed competition.
"They can show up on the day, then do a quick walk on stage, so it should be very entertaining. Whoever is best dressed on the day will win the prize."

Port Fairy volunteer Carolyn Aitken will stage her play One Dress at the Lifeline Shop on Saturday.
Mrs Aitken said the play was written for the Short Play Festival, and staged under the title Full Circle, but she was overseas during the performance.
"The title One Dress suits the play more because it comes from a Coco Chanel quote that one good dress can take you from morning till night with the right accessories," Mrs Aitken said.
"I have been given the opportunity now to play with the production now, I get to direct it and have a say what the dress looks like.
"I wanted the play to be about what happens in an op shop, and the camaraderie of the volunteers with a sub plot about the generations who come in to shop."
One Dress will be staged in the Port Fairy Lifeline Shop at 10.30am on Saturday. Limited tickets are available for the performance from the shop.
