Ballarat Heritage Festival is in full swing, with hundreds of people in the CBD for a classic car show and shine on Sunday afternoon.

Also enjoying the heritage vibe were Admiral and Lady Gold, posing amongst the vehicles and delighting children.
"As a statue, you're silent and quiet, but we create that beautiful magical bubble so people can come in and meet us."
"We've been doing this 25 years, we were Bourke Street buskers for many years before we started travelling the world," added Lady Gold, also known as Sam Starr.
The Ballarat Heritage Festival continues this week, with the famous Beard and Moustache Competition at Hop Temple on May 28, foodie tours and exhibitions throughout the city, and a steam train arriving for weekend tours.
