Sun shines for picture perfect Emerald Beach Fair

THE weather gods were kind to the organisers of Emerald Beach Fair with horrific storms clearing to create a picture perfect day for the community event.

Thousands flocked to Emerald Beach Reserve on Sunday for a day of festivities including performances from Woolgoolga Dance Studio, Coffs Community Circus and local band Shelly Jones Band.

Food and market stalls were a hit with locals who made the most of face painting and delicious treats aplenty.

Coffs Harbour Mayor Denise Knight was on hand to officially begin proceedings while the newly inducted Town Crier - Northern Beaches local Richard Frost - could be found hollering throughout the event.

Other highlights of the day included the entrance of Coffs City Skydivers from above, the sand modelling competition and kite-flying.

All proceeds from the fair will be spent on projects within the community.
