Fun filled weekend at Surfing the Coldstream Festival

Capture   The weather could not have been more perfect, for the running of last weekends Surfing the Coldstream Festival, in Yamba. The festival which ran over three days attracted huge crowds and according to festival organisers, the event was incident free. There was something for everyone to enjoy from the jumping castle, face painting, craft activities and Lego building for the children to a wide range of musical entertainment right down to the Flame Squad who displayed a spectacular performance with fire. Event organiser Phil Nicholas said that there was no question to the events success. “By 1pm the crowd had packed into Flinders Park and it stayed that way throughout the day and into the night.” “Visitors from Holland and Mauritius attended the festival along with many visitors from Queensland and other areas staying in Yamba for the weekend who couldn’t believe that they had this magnificent free event taking place.” According to Mr Nicholas the production timing went smoothly, like clockwork. “On Saturday morning there were 30 buskers entertaining around the CBD of Yamba,” said Mr Nicholas. “Around 150 performers and volunteers worked together to pull off the very successful event and we’d like to thank all our sponsors for their support.”
