Yakka Park Music Festival fun | PHOTOS

COUNTRY music fans came in droves to Lucindale for the Yakka Park Music Festival on the weekend.

There was singing, dancing and lots of good times at the inaugural event which started to get toes tapping on Friday evening.

Lucindale Lions Club member Jeff Davey, who helped to organise the show with Wellington's Dave Williams, said it went better than the organisers expected.

"There were 62 vans parked around the site and I think we would have just nudged 300 people," he said.

Guests travelled from as far as Adelaide and far north Queensland to watch the line-up of artists which included "The Banjo Girl" Taylor Pfeiffer, Return of Elvis and the Electric Horseman.

Friday night was for walk-up acts before the main day of performances on Saturday.

"That night was when it really got going and people started to hop, bop and sing," Mr Davey said.

"Everyone was really fired up and some dancing took place."

An evening dinner of fresh Coorong mullet was a hit with roughly 150 meals cooked and served thanks to Trevor Pomery.

Then on Sunday there were gospel music performances as people packed up to return home.

Mr Davey said many people left comments in a "suggestions book" on ways to improve the event for next time.

"It is now up to the Lions club if they would like to do it again," he said.

"But the patrons would all like it to happen again."

He added one concern was with the shed's sound acoustics, which would be attended to before any future events.

Raffle prize winners were: Smiley's Garden Centre Jack and Jill - M. Davidson; Naracoorte Toyota AFL Crows jumper - A. Wardle; MiniJumbuk quilt - B. Moore; Dave Williams jacket - A. Burdett.
