The sun shone on the volcanic plains of south-west Victoria for the 149th Camperdown Show.
The pristine showgrounds were bursting with activity: there were rides to please kids of all ages, show-stopping livestock, impressive dog displays, loads of food trucks and live entertainment all day long.
Visitors came from near and far to check out the family fun day steeped in history and tradition.
More than 3000 people walked through the gates, and show secretary Amanda Manifold said she and the show committee received nothing but glowing reviews all day.
"It went really well, we are very happy with the turnout that we had," Ms Manifold said.
"It was well supported again by locals as well as visitors afar, with one family travelling from Melbourne and Werribee to enter the contested Dachshund Dash.
"We had great weather and a good turnout of trade displays, high quality horses competing, and the quality of animals that were presented through the different sections were of a high standard and commended by the judges."
Held at Mt Leura's base, the show which started in 1872 just keeps getting better and better.
The horse riding competitions are the longest running part of the show, being held over two days on Saturday and Sunday.
15-year-old Indee Smith of Cobden took out first place in the Supreme Led Pony Event and also entered a number of other events.
By 11am she had wasted no time, having already entered an Arab horse c;asses, the open pony section, the riding pony and part welsh.
"It's been a really good day so far," she said.
Camperdown mates Lily Hands and Ava Bentley, both 14, found the best seat in the house to watch the horse riding events, perching themselves on two large hay bales in the shade.
"It's been really good and fun, we have been watching the horses for most of the day," Lily said.
"We don't ride but wish we did!"
Kids of all ages joined in on rides, animal shows, face-painting, arts and crafts, showbags and treasure hunts.
Ms Manifold said the show bag treasure hunt was a real hit with the younger patrons.
"So many people said the day had a really great feel about it and we're so happy people left having had a good day out," she said.
The show will be celebrating its 150th birthday and plans are already starting to be made.
"There is already talk of what we are going to do to make it an extra special day," Ms Manifold said.
"We love that we've been able to revitalise the show, it just makes you realise how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful spot.
"Hopefully it can be something we can build on and celebrate.
"A big thanks to the committee for all the work they to everyone for coming out and supporting us again."
