BAM fete a huge success

YESTERDAY saw Millennium Esplanade come alive with the sound of music – and art, markets and delicious food as hundreds of people attended the fifth BAM event.

Despite the morning rain, the weather didn’t put a damper on the free monthly event run by the Boyne Tannum Arts, Business, Community Association Inc as a means of bringing the arts to the community.

Stall organiser Julie Mier said since the first month it was held the event was getting bigger and better.

This month saw the introduction of two entertainment areas which saw the main band area host a range of talented performers with a smaller stage featuring Brian Carter who entertained those in the food court area.

Another new attraction this month was Tattoo Tim where visitors flocked to have their photo taken in their favourite fantasy costumes.

There was also a host of popular regular stall holders selling their unique homewares, craft, art and second-hand goods.

The BAM festival organisers are always on the lookout for more artists, performers and stall holders. For information, email admin@beachartsmusic.com.au.
