IT STARTED out almost 10 years ago as a small annual gathering to celebrate the local community, but the Emerald Beach Community Fair has well and truly grown up.

The Fair attracted more than 6000 people on Sunday.

"It was one of our biggest crowds," publicity officer Ken Kennedy said.

"We couldn't have asked for better weather, it was picture perfect," he said.

The crowds gathered to see the pooch parade, kite flying, sky divers and to fling the golden thong.

Food and market stalls reported a busy day; some sold out of their wares.

Mr Kennedy said one of the big highlights this year was the street art gallery.

"All the street art was done by the kids from Sandy Beach Primary School and Woolgoolga High School. We had two on every power pole heading into Emerald Beach," Mr Kennedy said.

"We even had some people who wanted to buy them."

The money raised from the Fair will be funnelled back into the Emerald Beach community.
