There are so many events that make Northern Tasmanian unique.
Big crowd-drawing occasions like Mona Foma, Agfest, Festivale, Supercars at Symmons Plains, the Tasmanian Craft Fair and more.
Then there are community-driven events like Launceston Harvest Market, Launceston Night Market, Tamar Valley Peace Festival, the Breath of Fresh Air film festival that gives the region some charm and character.
Another staple, the Launceston Show was again held this week and while it is by far in its prime, it is an important event for the region's agricultural sector.
In 2001, The Examiner reported that about 20,000 people flocked through the Launceston Show gates on day one for the then three-day event.
Eighteen years on and organisers estimate they reached 10,000 patrons for what has become a one-day showcase.
Northern Tasmanians must support events as they are part of what help bind communities together.
No matter how big or small an event is, they encourage socialisation, strong relationships, instil pride and provide good economic benefits.
Without many of them, Launceston and surrounds wouldn't be the same.
So this summer you must get out and about, not to only enjoy the sunshine, but to support the volunteers and events that make our region great.
