WHEN Toast Urunga organiser Jan Baker looked out her window yesterday she was thrilled to see wispy clouds in a blue sky.

On Sunday, with 300 pink, blue and green flags set against a sunny backdrop, the Morgo St Reserve turned into a carnival of sorts, complete with trampolining and stilt-walker.

Ms Baker said hundreds of people flocked to the reserve before 10am to see Coffs Drumline and those numbers soon swelled into the thousands.

“It's an exceptional atmosphere, people are having a great time and there is a constant stream coming into the reserve,” Ms Baker said.

“The whole amphitheatre area is covered in bodies with about 900 chairs and tables in sight.”

She said there were hundreds watching the cooking demonstrations and it was shaping up to be a lovely afternoon.
