Dianne Collins from Bundaberg took her three children along to Monday's market day for the first time.

"We heard about it and though we'd come and have a look, we had no expectations," she said.

"It's great to get the kids out on the holidays."

Woodgate Community Events president Rae Scott said organisers were happy with the turnout but would have liked to see more for the jazz entertainment on Saturday and yesterday morning. "

The crowd was fairly small but very enthusiastic," she said. "

But I think the market day was very successful."

Woodgate Arts in Spring exhibition curator Jenny McDuff said the standard of art entires was high and sales reflected the wide variety of quality works.

"It's really heartening to see that younger people's - that is abstract work - is selling along with more traditional paintings and everything in between," she said.

"I look for originality and people who understand their medium."
