WIMMERA Machinery Field Days first ever Twilight Day received mainly positive responses from both site holders and patrons.
The event was open until 7pm on Tuesday night, with entry free after 3pm. A variety of food and drink was available on the night, while entertainment was provided.
Speaking before the event, Wimmera Machinery Field Days manager Murray Wilson said the later time would give everyone the opportunity to experience field days.
"Especially those who can’t get there during the day because of work. It will also be an opportunity for people who don’t know a lot about agriculture to learn more," he said.
Wimmera Grain Company's site was open during the later hours. The company's Sarah Pathirana said the site had been quiet.
"I'm always open for new ideas and to have different avenues to get people here - it's all trial and error," she said.
"Last year we were flat out and barely got five minutes to sit down on day one and two, but it was completely different today."
Wimmera Aquatrail manager Mark Crafter said he wasn't sure if the Twilight Day had been a success.
"It's worth a try, but i don't know whether the general population was interested in coming out. We saw small spikes throughout the day," he said.
"The Twilight Day as good for families with young kids who haven't grown up on a farm to learn more about the agriculture industry."

Horsham family Dan, Trish and Indi Penny came out to the field days site at about 5pm, specifically for the Twilight Day.
"We work full time, and this has enabled us to come out and have a look. We don't get out here enough and see what's here," Trish said.
"I think it's a great idea that helps people get a chance to come along."
Warracknabeal family Kirsten, Aaron, Harry and Hannah Zwar also decided to come out later to the event for Twilight Day.
"We picked the kids up from school and headed out here to have a look around," Kirsten said.
"It's a great chance for families to have a night out and see what's here."
Portland resident Brianna Bench said field days was a traditional for her and her father. She said the later hours gave the event "a good atmosphere".
