Members of the Slee and Tyrrell families, of Kurow, (front from left) Lucy Tyrrell, Sasha Slee, Samantha Slee, Katy Tyrrell (middle from left) Sydney Slee, Leah Slee and Hunter Tyrrell (back) welcome the annual return of the ''Hay family'' to the town for the 23rd year in a row.

Hay bales in the centre of the town have been painted to resemble people every year by members of the Slee family in Kurow. Janina Slee said the idea, which was taken from a town in Germany 23 years ago, was always a drawcard for tourists.

This year, her niece Lucy Tyrrell had designed a South Park theme to attract a younger audience, she said.
