Beerfestabull has it all
CLINT Jensen has been looking for the perfect combination of elements for an event and he reckons he has found it with the inaugural Beerfestabull.
"Beer, bulls and music. You really can't lose," Mr Jensen said.
"It's just a perfect mix."
It is estimated about 17,000 flocked to the two-day festival at the Innes Park Country Club at the weekend, where they were treated to more than 100 different beers, professional bull riding and award-winning entertainment.
Mr Jensen said the grounds were "packed to the rafters" for the bull-riding action on Saturday night.
"We had a bull riding arena that seated 6000 people - there was not a spare seat in between," he said.
"It was just bumper to bumper."
Mr Jensen, who developed Beerfestabull out of last year's Beer Fest, said he was "absolutely rapt" with the turnout and thanked the community for getting behind the event.
"You get a couple of little hiccups, but nothing that can't be fixed for next year," he said.
"I'm going to grow it next year by 50%."
Mr Jensen said country music singer Adam Brand had been one of many show-stoppers during the event.
"It was amazing - we had bands playing all day," he said.
Bargara Police Sergeant Glenn Cameron said officers were impressed by patrons' behaviour across the two days.
"We had sufficient officers to police the event and it all went off without any problems," he said.
