Tarrington has rolled out its traditional hay bale welcome and it comes as no surprise that many of this year's artworks have a COVID-19 theme.
Paying homage to one of 2020's most unusual crisis - the toilet paper shortage - one of the haybales has been decorated as a giant toilet roll.
The hay bale art competition usually coincides with the town's Laternenfest which this year became another victim of the pandemic restrictions.
Festival organiser Colin Huf said there were a number of COVID-themed hay bales with a number the creations donning face masks.
He said there were about 30 hay bale artworks in this year's competition but some people were still in the process of decorating them this week.
"So we don't know what surprises will be in store with them," Mr Huf said.
"It's good to see the families and the kids out with their spray cans decorating the bales."
Other hay bales depict "Will-hay Nelson" with a big guitar, a bush Christmas theme with a hay bale turned into the gum nut surrounded by Aussie animals and a baby Jesus, a possum and a giant chainsaw.
With the Laternenfest cancelled this year, the only event would be an outdoor function to announce the winners of the hay bale art.
The festival - which was to celebrate its 26th year this November - usually includes crafts, stalls, kids' rides, maypole dancing, bratwurst barbecue and a lantern parade.
"The shire was very keen for us to go ahead with the hay bales because it just gives people something they can go for a drive and have a look at," Mr Huf said.
"It's very popular for the local area and further afield."
