There's still decisions to be made, but there's increasing confidence around the return of the Wellington Vintage Fair.
The event, one of few community events that went ahead last year, is expected to return this year, although organisers are still waiting on the final green lights to put their plans into motion.
Wellington Rotary Club's Emily Falson, who's been one of the key drivers being driving and expanding the event in recent years, says 'everything' is set to go as soon as approval is given.
"I've just got to wait for some confirmation, we've got everything set, we've got lots of volunteers from our coastal clubs, lots of people on the gate so we can adhere to the COVID regulations, we're planning full steam ahead, we just wanted to wait and see what the government regulations say," Ms Falson said.
"They've definitely turned in our favour."
Ms Falson says when the event goes ahead, it'll be conducted with full compliance with all the necessary precautions and safety measures.
"We're taking the temperatures and watching the QR codes. We're going to have to be very careful, it's going to be a very demanding event this year," Ms Falson said.
"It's tricky at the moment, you never know, it only takes one person to be irresponsible or not know that they actually have."
One of the main concerns is the number of people who travel across the state to attend the event, including the large variety of motoring enthusiast clubs who travel to display their vehicles.
"It's the same with any large event, we will have for several days and a week prior to the event in certain areas, we'll have to ask people to show us their licenses and we'll be making sure to advertise that if you are from a hot spot, you can't come in," Ms Falson said.
"Some of those clubs do come from the coast, it's so difficult, but we can't allow anyone who's from a hot spot."
"We'll have to wait and see what is actually happening in terms of the suburbs and post codes that are being designated as hot spots and what restrictions are put in place on them."
