The stage is set for the return of Horsham's annual Kannamaroo festival.
Beginning on Friday, the festival will see Firebrace Street buzzing with activity, with footpath trading, busking and a scavenger hunt game.
Firebrace Street will not be closed to traffic, unlike previous years.
On Saturday and Sunday, the Kannamaroo Festival will move to the Horsham Showgrounds.
As per COVID-safe health guidelines, all those attending the Festival who are 12 years or older will be required to show proof they are fully vaccinated or have an appropriate medical exemption.
On Saturday, the festival will begin at 10am and continue until 10pm, with MIXX FM's Pyromusical Festival Spectacular hosting an extended fireworks display at 9.30pm at the greyhound track.
From 6-9pm, live music will be performing near the river, with acts such as two time Golden Guitar winner Andrew Swift and Rockin' Solo Dave.
Attendees were urged to bring their own chairs to enjoy the live performances, and to walk over to the greyhound track ahead of time to make the check-in process smoother before the fireworks start.
On Sunday, the Riverside Market will come to the showgrounds from 9am to 2pm, with many attractions including bands, petting zoos, food vans and a magician.
The day will also include the inaugural Kannamacruise, where attendees will form up on Sunday morning around 10am near Botanic Gardens and will be sent off in groups with maps to tour different parts of the city, and ultimately end up at Maydale Reserve for a static display from 11.30am-1pm.
Kannamaroo Festival committee chair Di Bell thanked all of the volunteers for their hard work in getting the festival off of the ground.
"As chair, I am proud of the work the committee has put in to not stop the festival because of COVID," she said
"We modified the layout last year to suit restrictions and we have modified the event this year to suit restrictions. We will continue because we think the festival is important for the community."
She asked community members to be respectful of volunteers as they navigate the various COVID-19 restrictions throughout the day.
"We ask the community to respect our wonderful volunteers and do not involve them in any discussions regarding COVID requirements," she said.
"This festival is about community, it is not restrictive. There is no fee to get in and anyone can come.
"It will be lovely to see people reconnecting, and families out together."
The 2021 Kannamaroo Festival will be an all-inclusive event.
Understanding the long distances between attractions, organisers have asked people with disabilities to call 1300 668 315 and leave a message with their name and phone number, should they need assistance.
