Organised by the town council, the event included a treasure hunt, fun dog show, live music and a tug-of-war contest.
Students at Brimsham Green School ran a fund raising stall for the Hosanna 2016 project – the school supports Hosanna School in Uganda – and an activity craft tent was also open to the 500 visitors who turned up.
South Gloucestershire dog warden Celia Bourne judged the pets and local saxophonist Mark Austin entertained the crowd.
Councillor John Ford, Yate’s deputy mayor, said: “Residents of all ages had a fun, sunny Sunday afternoon in an old village fete tradition.  
“Mark Austin’s opening number, Summer Time, was perfect for the day and location by the lake.
“Our thanks to Mark and to the Friends of Brinsham Park for the ideas put forward for the day.”
