THE beat was bopping and the tunes were popping once again at this year's Leeton Country Music Festival.
Held over five days from October 30, the event attracted hundreds of visitors and residents alike.
While the weather may have been a little wild for the last two days of the festival, it failed to dampen the spirits of those attending at the Leeton Jockey Club.
Thanks to the undercover area, the show went on to great applause.
Lightning on the Sunday did cause some concern, but in the end everything went to plan, according to organiser Mark Hillier.
"It was a great weekend ... the feedback has been very positive again," he said.
"The numbers were on par with the last couple of years as far as visitors were concerned.
"We hold this event for everyone. It's great to see so many people come out and support it.
"Hopefully we can keep putting it on every year."
A jam-packed program over the five days greeted those taking part.
This included everything from talent shows, line dancing lessons, trivia and poetry to live music acts, concerts and a shop local campaign.
"That's also why this event is so good is that we encourage the people who do participate from out-of-town to spend their money in town," Mr Hillier said.
"It gives our local economy a bit of a push."
The festival also raises funds for charities and community groups, with 2019 no different.
Artists taking part this year included Glenn Jones, Tom Maxwell, John Smith, Marie Hodson, Shelley Jones Band, Col Driscoll and many more.
"A lot of work goes into the festival, so we're happy everyone enjoyed themselves," Mr Hillier said.
"It's great we're able to give back to the community.
"That's what it is all about."
Organisers will now recoup before looking ahead to the 2020 event.
