Generations came together for a day of unplugged family entertainment at Bethanie Fields at its fourth annual Grandparents Day on June 10.

Families enjoyed afternoon tea and traditional games at the event held on behalf of the Dardanup Shire Council.

Traditional entertainment included floor-sized snakes and ladders, ring toss, building blocks, giant pick up sticks and skittles.

A piano provided old time favourite tunes and a candy buffet station proved popular with all ages.
