The annual New Year's Day Naseby family fun day event, which has been on the town's holiday calendar for about 15 years, attracted almost 1000 people to the Naseby Domain yesterday, about five times the town's normal population.
Running races, three-legged races, sack races, miniature train rides and more entertained the crowd throughout the afternoon but it was an event that very nearly did not go ahead.
Previous organiser Bill Morice announced earlier this year that he would be stepping down from the role for health reasons.
He was unable to find someone to take on the role and the event was about to be called off when Danseys Pass farmer Dave Crutchely put up his hand a little over a month ago.
The day had gone ''pretty well'', he said yesterday and his had been a somewhat easy job, thanks to many helping hands.
''It's just amazing how everyone just does what they've done over the years.''
He was hoping to include a few new games next year.
