SUNDAY'S Emerald Beach Fair delighted locals and visitors alike.

The fair, which aims to showcase the cultural and creative talents of the Emerald community, offered a number of activities to please the whole family.

From thong throwing to dog dress-ups, musical performances to the cake competition, there was no shortage of things to see and do.

The theme for stallholders was "make it, bake it, grow it", with people from all over the Coffs Coast offering up their arts and crafts and food creations.

To mark the 10th anniversary of the Emerald Beach Fair, the committee established the Dee Wallace Memorial Award to recognise a young person who displays outstanding community leadership.

In its first year the $2000 prize went to Jane Chivers, who plans to use her winnings to start her teaching degree at the University of Armidale.

Other events on the day included the decorated bicycles competition, a photography competition and a performance by Woolgoolga Dance Studio.

The fair had an international flavour, with Scottish bagpipes, Cuban dancers and a variety of international food to taste.
