WHILE there were the big ticket events on as part of the Australian Art Deco Festival over the weekend, there were plenty of other smaller ones that were all part of the fun.
The first day of the festival included author Tessa Lunney hosting talks at both the library and a special dinner at Pages on Pine.
Her book, April in Paris, 1921 perfectly suited the theme of the weekend and residents were thoroughly charmed by her stories and wit.
Festival goers were also able to amble through the former WCIC building to catch the Underworld: Mugshots from the Roaring Twenties photographic exhibition, a display by the Leeton Family and Local Historical Society and artwork, all while enjoying a glass of wine or a coffee and treat.
There was also the Tutankhamun Roadshow to check, which featured real Egyptian artifacts, thrilling the crowds that walked through.
Those looking further afield from Chelmsford Place could take part in a guided heritage walking tour, but there was also the option to download an app and do it on your own.
Heading down Daalbata Road, the Henry Lawson Cottage was open for visitors to explore, with Geoffrey Graham dressing the part as he often does and reading Henry's poetry and work aloud for all to enjoy.
Vintage car displays throughout the weekend wowed the crowds, with many stories behind the beautifully restored vehicles coming to life.
One of those was a Thunder Road Flathead Ford, owned by Robert Mercieca from the Early Ford V8 Club of NSW.
The vehicle was imported from America and was once used as a moonshine runner in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Its "runners" were caught with a boot full of moonshine and the car was confiscated and stored by the Federal US Authorities for 30 before being released for general sale.
These cars were the vehicle of choice for the "runners" as they were a light coupe body with a V8, which meant they were fast and could outrun the police.
These cars also had large boot compartments for storing the alcohol.
When the coupe arrived in Australia and was being restored, the restorer said he did regret filling and smoothing the holes in the boot floor and repairing the wooden rear seat back riser - these were modifications made back in the day to accommodate the large cylindrical moonshine tank.
Another of the vehicles attending has been used in several Hollywood Movies.
A burgundy 1939 Ford Deluxe was originally used in the Australian movie Ginger Meggs.
More recently it was used in Unbroken directed by Angelina Jolie and Hacksaw Ridge directed by Mel Gibson.
