Do you remember the Florado Festival?
Held in Warrnambool from 1957 until 1966, it was one of Warrnambool's biggest celebrations and a precursor to Wunta Fiesta.
The festival, along with other gems of Warrnambool's past, will be celebrated as part of the city's annual Celebrage Festival.
Running from October 6-31, Celebrage includes many low-cost activities for seniors, including historic photo and video presentations by the Warrnambool and District Historical Society.
Celebrage co-ordinator Clare Vaughan encouraged people to remember the "Florado spirit".
"It's only by going out and getting involved in things that you can understand what it's really like to live in Warrnambool," she said.
"From walking tours of historic buildings, to concerts, vintage car rides, pampering sessions and even wellness activities to help you get a good night's sleep, we've put together a broad range of activities to show you just how much fun Warrnambool can be at any age."
Warrnambool and District Historic Society president Janet Macdonald said there was a growing interest in the mid-20th century history.
"People can come (to the Celebrage events) and see footage of things they might have once enjoyed, but forgotten about," she said.
Celebrage is part of the Victorian Seniors Festival.
