WITH Covid-19 leading to the cancellation of the Bathurst Royal Show in 2020, this year's event attracted a large number of smiling faces.
Between thrilling rides, fun games, tasty food and exciting live action, there was something for everyone. Locals won awards at the exhibits and parents put in huge amounts of time to prepare for the best dressed competitions at the horse shows.
Footy fans from the Panthers versus Manly NRL match also checked things out post-match.
Western Advocate photographer Chris Seabrook captured a few happy faces.
