Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By KRIS DANDO

A smat­ter­ing of rain didn’t keep the crowds away from Creek­fest on Satur­day.

Though it never got re­ally heavy, misty rain set­tled over Can­nons Creek Park for much of the day.

Nev­er­the­less, or­gan­iser Liz Kelly said about 30,000 peo­ple turned up to en­joy mu­sic, food, sport, free rides and wan­der around the tents of many com­mu­nity agen­cies.

‘‘It was awe­some and I’m sure there were more peo­ple than last year,’’ she said.

‘‘It just goes to show that the com­mu­nity looks for­ward to this event. I’m re­ally stoked with how it all panned out.’’
