A DOWNPOUR failed to dampen the spirits of crowds at this year’s Bicheno Food and Wine festival.
Held on Saturday, November 20, the food and drink extravaganza showcased the best of the East Coast.
Some patrons kickstarted their day with an espresso martini from Ironhouse Brewery while others warmed up with mulled wine from Hurly Burly Wines.
Food highlights included delicious steamed Taiwanese buns from Deep End Farm and the Instagram-worthy squid on a stick from Formosa Bites.
Performances from bands including King Cake and Polaroids encouraged everyone to chair dance in their picnic seats at this Covid-safe event.
Despite problems with Eftpos, the day was a success and the festival is set to return next November.
