On May 4th, members of the Williamstown Camera Club attended the vibrant Trentham Spudfest in Trentham, Victoria. This unique festival celebrates the region's rich potato farming heritage with a plethora of activities, and the photographers were there to capture every memorable moment.

Throughout the day, they documented everything from the lively potato races and quirky spud-themed games to the farmers' market filled with fresh, local produce. The club members focused on the joyful expressions of festival-goers, the dynamic energy of live music performances, and the intricate details of the artisan crafts displayed. Their cameras also caught the enthusiastic participation in attendees indulging on the available street food in which potatoes were, naturally, the star ingredient. 

As the festival unfolded, the photographers moved through crowds, capturing the essence of community spirit and the rustic charm of Trentham.
