Locals came out in droves over the weekend for two major events in the Byron Shire, highlighting a welcome return for major events in the region.
Blessed with clear skies, the Caper Festival and the annual Mullum Show went off in the sunshine, attracting thousands of visitors from across the Northern Rivers and beyond.
Caper offered up delectable bites from some of Byron’s best eateries, along with music and talks, all scattered across various venues in Byron Bay.
Meanwhile, the Mullum Show filled its traditional home at the Showgrounds, entertaining locals with everything from trotting displays and show jumping to mower racing and a talent quest.
After a tough 12 months in the region, both events were a much-needed opportunity for locals to let their collective hair down.
