After a busy Easter, visitors will again be drawn to Mount Beauty for its annual music festival this ANZAC Day weekend.
The event was scheduled to run on April 24 last year at the town's community centre, but the pandemic kept the town quiet.
While the festival committee worked to showcase local talent through live-streaming events supported by the state government, a return to physical programming is welcome.
Organiser Jocelyn Ceccanti is looking forward to music filling the hills once again, this time at Les Peart Oval.
"It's a day event this time, and free," she said.
"We'll have an outdoor stage with food and craft markets running.
"It will be really casual; people can bring their chairs and rugs, have some food and hang out."
The event folded in 2017, but the committee revived it with great success in 2018.
Changing its format to a day event with more family-orientated activities has expanded its offerings.
"There's been 20 years of this festival, but I've only been part of it for three," Mrs Ceccanti said.
"They used to do multiple venues and it was full-on.
"We did one thing the first year, which was just one night, and over three years, you get a lot of insight about what is best to do."
The two-day event will feature seven music and entertainment acts between 10am and 4pm on the Saturday.
Music will run for the same period on Sunday except for 11am to 12pm, with events pausing for ANZAC Day commemorations.
The march down Hollonds Street will commence at 10.45am, before the mid-morning service at 11am at the Mount Beauty Cenotaph in Lakeside Avenue.
Mrs Ceccanti said QR codes and safety measures would ensure the event is COVID-safe.
"There will be food and craft in the morning, which a lot of the locals enjoy," she said.
"Maggie Moo from Albury is great for the kids, and Kiewa Milk is coming on board to give out Kiewa Milk.

Sunday will also involve a 'Tow and Show' of muscle, hot rod, vintage and other cars, with support from the Mount Beauty Car Club.
"We brought in the car show in 2019 and that went really well," Mrs Ceccanti said.
"People can bring in their cars and then go watch the parade.
