IF you're looking to celebrate the beginning of a new season and want to be involved in one of the staples on the town calendar, then get along to the St Alban's Spring Fair this weekend.
It may technically be the last day of winter, but there'll be a warm, inviting atmosphere at the church as they churn out all of the family favourites that have made the event such a success.
Set to be held on Saturday, August 31, between 9am and 2pm, there will be plenty of attractions for all those who attend.
Barista-made coffees, quilt displays, cake stalls, vintage car displays, chocolate wheels, raffles and a barbecue will be among the interests for adults.
Meanwhile, children's activities and entertainment such as a jumping castle will be available to keep the younger show goers amused.
A plethora of community groups will also be on hand, such as the Rural Fire Service and Muswellbrook Police who will be putting on displays.
All donations on the day will go towards local charities and organisations with Riding for the Disabled, Red Door Community Kitchen, St Alban's Community Centre and several schools set to benefit.
Muswellbrook has very much come together for the day as several sponsors have jumped on board to help with the event.
Reverend Scott Dulley said a lot of effort goes into getting the fair up and running and encourages anyone interested to come along and have a look at the festivities.
"It's about a 12-month process but we really ramp it up about six months beforehand," he said.
"There's a team of about 10 or 15 people who are pretty committed to it for about six months before we're ready to go.
"It's really just a great day out and we want it to be a major event - a family-friendly event - for the community."
