Beaconsfield's Youth and Community Festival once again provided an exciting start to the school holidays for the valley's younger community.
Skating competitions, live music and a 3D printer were among some of the highlights.
Youth Advisory Council member and organiser Ann-Lea Wykes said despite a few hiccups early in the morning the day ran really well.
"Everyone had a really good time," Ms Wykes said.
"The skate comp's always been a standout and the music's always something people love, it was nice to see people just sitting around and enjoying the day."
In conjunction with all the fun activities, the festival showcased the Helping Our Peers Educate short video series created by young people from around the region.
The nine videos are focussed on addressing key issues faced by young people in the region and how they can access support and services if need be.
The five videos were made possible through a $6000 grant given to the West Tamar Council by the ABC through its Heywire Program.
They cover a variety of issues including body image, mental health and bullying.

West Tamar Council mayor Christina Holmdahl said being a regional community, access to support and services for young people can be limiting in the West Tamar area.
"Promoting a video resource which can be accessed all hours is vital, along with the creation of a safe place at their school," she said.
"Our Youth Development Officer is initially working with Exeter High School to create a space for students to be supported during stressful times, and is also planning to distribute USB's with the videos on them to all schools when our Youth Advisory Council presents them to older grade levels throughout the year."
Cr Holmdahl said overall the festival was a day tailored by the youth of the area who gave feedback on how the event can be improved through the youth survey distributed earlier this year.
"I really commend Youth Advisory Council because they're a bunch of young people who come from schools in our municipality that really represent a broad section of our young people," she said.
"They do a lot of good things - they talk to the kids, there was a survey where we asked young people for their views on certain things.
"I was blown away at the level of thought that went into some of the responses - I sat down and read them and it really shows me that today young kids are more in touch with what's happening in their world than at times we give them credit for."
