Locals of all ages are flocking to Gunnedah Summerfest.
The long-running free holiday program kicked off with a family bush dance on Saturday night, followed by the first full day of activities on Monday at Gunnedah High School.
Kids club (years 1-6), a teens program (years 7-12) and Summerfest Cafe will run daily from 9.30am-11.30am in the school grounds.
The theme for the kids club is 'Who is the ruler?' - the answer to the question is being explored through games, drama, song and activities.
The teens program gives youth an opportunity to make new friends, share their views, play games and look at the Bible.
Parents can drop their kids off in the creche room and pull up a chair in the Summerfest Cafe and catch up over a cuppa and home-baked goodies.
Other key events during the week include a blokes barbecue on Wednesday, ladies night on Friday, and combined churches service on Sunday.
Summerfest was originally called Summer Mission and was run by Scripture Union for decades. It was relaunched by a new team under the name of Summerfest in 2018 with support from local churches.
