TODAY will be a throw-back to celebrations held in the Victorian era.
From 10am to 2pm, the Franklin Village fair will take place.
It will involve the community that was once known as Franklin Village on Hobart Road, including Glenara Lakes, IGA Youngtown, Log Cabin nursery, St James Church, Self Help Workplace, Encore Clothing and of course, Franklin House.
Franklin House property manager Hilary Keeley said the fair would be a fun, family-focused day out.
"There will be plenty of old-time children's games, such as an egg and spoon race, coconut shy and horseshoe tossing," Mrs Keeley said.
"It's a really good exercise in community, it's good just to get people together, because this is how it was done in the Victorian times, everyone in the community, from the gardeners to the lords and ladies, would spend the day together."
From 10am, St James Church will hold a mass planting of "what makes me happy flowers" - flowers that have been inscribed by Youngtown and Riverside primary school pupils.
Franklin House will host live entertainment, stalls and more.
All proceeds from the fair will go back into the organisations.
