An estimated 5000 people gathered in the heart of Wagga to soak up the Spring Street Festival on Saturday. 

The Civic Precinct-based event offered food and drink stalls, fresh local produce, cooking demonstrations and live musical performances.

Organiser Alexandra Mack said the festival had built on a platform created by last year’s inaugural event. 

“We listened to our feedback and moved the musical performances up in front of council chambers,” Ms Mack said. 

“The people we spoke to this year said the music was much better, and stall holders said it really improved the street feel.”

”We also had more variety in our food stores.”

Musical acts included The Mighty Yak, Deja Groove and James Bennett.
