Music-lovers gathered at Shepparton’s sun-kissed Queen’s Gardens at the weekend to watch the region’s finest musical talent perform.
More than 250 people — from babies to the elderly — wandered along to Word and Mouth’s second Live in the Park event to witness the jam-packed line-up.
The crowd relaxed in sublime temperatures as dance-rock trio 8 Bit Love, originally from Shepparton, headlined the outdoor picnic-themed event.
Young bands Jeffrey’s Cabbage, The Manners, Fresh Productions and Battle of the Bands winner Dirty Thrill also took to the stage, while Joseph Moorhouse, Kate Hall, Poor Richards, Patrick Martin and Angels Voices Choir rounded out the line-up.

Word and Mouth project officer Jamie Lea said musicians put on an incredible show and the event was a huge success.
‘‘(The musicians were) out of this world, and for so many of the acts this was their first time to perform — not only on a Word and Mouth stage — but on a stage that size,’’ Ms Lea said.
‘‘It was exciting for Word and Mouth to give people in the community that opportunity to play in front of hundreds of people at a free event.’’
Ms Lea said this was the youth organisation’s final event for the year, going out with a bang.
‘‘Live in the Park is always such a favourite and is so popular for a lot of people,’’ she said.
‘‘We’re really happy people came and supported the day and so proud of our youth committee who pulled off the whole event on their own — it was definitely a team effort.’’
Ms Lea thanked Star Housing who donated the stage for the day, Greater Shepparton City Council and sponsors and supporters throughout the year.
