BAM festival rained out but not washed away

THE monthly Tannum Sands Beach, Arts and Music festival was unfortunately cancelled over the weekend after heavy rain and hail was expected.

However, stallholders who drove up especially for the event couldn't see any reason not to set up.

Although the small amount of rain did deter many, as soon as the rain had stopped keen locals and tourists crowded around.

"Because everything was cancelled, we had all decided to set up a mini market," a stallholder said.
