Well, if it was any other year many Ballarat people would be counting down the hours until they head off to the Avoca Cup.
But not in 2020.
With COVID-19 restrictions cancelling almost every single event for the past six months, the Avoca Cup is one of just many to go by the wayside (at least the social side of it).
So, how about we take a look back at the lighter times and look back at the happy faces in the crowd at Avoca with this gallery from the early 2000s?
Have a flick through the gallery above to see who you can spot.
