SB 10.14.46
tato hasan hrsikeso
 ’bhyavahrtya saharbhakaih
darsayams carmajagaram
 nyavartata vanad vrajam

Translation:
Then Lord Hrsikesa, smiling, finished His lunch in the company of His cowherd friends. While they were returning from the forest to their homes in Vraja, Lord Krsna showed the cowherd boys the skin of the dead serpent Aghasura.

barha-prasuna-vana-dhatu-vicitritangah
 proddama-venu-dala-srnga-ravotsavadhyah
vatsan grnann anuga-gita-pavitra-kirtir
 gopi-drg-utsava-drsih pravivesa gostham

Translation:
Lord Krsna’s transcendental body was decorated with peacock feathers and flowers and painted with forest minerals, and His bamboo flute loudly and festively resounded. As He called out to His calves by name, His cowherd boyfriends purified the whole world by chanting His glories. Thus Lord Krsna entered the cow pasture of His father, Nanda Maharaja, and the sight of His beauty at once produced a great festival for the eyes of all the cowherd women.

Purport:
According to Srila Jiva Gosvami and Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, the gopis mentioned here are the elder cowherd ladies such as mother Yasoda, who loved Krsna with parental affection. Krsna’s cowherd boyfriends were so proud of Krsna’s wonderful activities that while entering the village they all sang His glories.
