There were also plenty of static displays related to the heritage of the area to keep people interested, such as the Alpine Car Club, stationary engines and historic farm and mining machinery.
With the feel of autumn in the air, the festival attracted a large crowd and organisers were already plotting and planning for next year’s event.
BLAST FROM THE PAST: Hobby blacksmith Craig Eury created treasures at the forge, which were sold at silent auction.
