Up to 8000 of the Collingwood faithful got 2013 off to a flying start at the club's annual Family Day at Victoria Park on Saturday.
The revamped format was a huge hit with the fans who filed through the old turnstiles to watch the team go through a full scale training session that lasted more than two hours before mingling with their Magpie heroes as they walked the hallowed turf.
From the fans:
"We all had a fab time at Vic Park. It's always great to go back there and relive all the fabulous memories I have from there and share them with my family and friends. So once again I thank you. Collingwood forever and always" Ann
