10,000 ?taste? Byron



The rain gods smiled on Taste of Byron organisers on Sunday.

As much as the region needed it, rain was the last thing they wanted to see.

However, see it they did as they were setting up at Byron Bay's Main Beach on Sunday morning and when they were cleaning up in the afternoon.

But in the middle of the day, there was scarcely a drop.

As a result, an estimated 10,000 people passed through the festival site during the day.

"I am very happy with the result," said co-ordinator, Jacqueline McRae.

"All stalls had a great day."

Ms McRae said there were 22 food stalls and 10 produce stalls with a wider regional representation.

The Taste of Byron was sponsored by the Great Northern Hotel.
