THE clouds were threatening in Peel Street but festivalgoers made the most of Sunday, lapping up the entertainment in and around the CBD.
On day three of the Tamworth Country Music Festival, thousands of revellers ventured in and out of pubs and clubs, and onto the Boulevard of Dreams, to soak up the music, the buskers and the activities in hot spots like Fitzroy Plaza, Bicentennial Park and the Festival Fringe area.
The Northern Daily Leader photographers were out and about to capture the faces in the crowd.
Good numbers were reported at the Aussie Night Markets at the Tamworth Jockey Club on Saturday night, and there was a solid crowd at Wests' Scully Park on Sunday night for Cold Chisel and support acts, Paul Kelly, Troy Cassar-Daley, Kasey Chambers, and Charlie Collins.
It's also been a good first weekend for local pubs and clubs who've reported bumper crowds, despite the drought and the state's bushfire crisis that threatened to turn visitors away.
