There was no lack of things to see and do for the 4000 people at Saturday’s seventh annual Nagambie on Water festival.

Activities and attractions included flyboard demonstrations, canoeing, paddle boating, sailing and water skiing troupe Stars Down Under.

For those who preferred to stay on land, there were lakeside market stalls, art displays, live music performances, face-painting and a photobooth.

Festival co-ordinator Bev Benson said she received excellent feedback from a number of attendees on the day.

‘‘The weather was perfect, we were absolutely blessed, and having live music right throughout the day was an absolute bonus,’’ Ms Benson said.

‘‘The flyboard demonstration certainly got everyone talking, and the water skiing was just fabulous to watch.’’

Ms Benson said young families particularly appreciated the wide range of free activities and entertainment.

‘‘They stayed longer and just enjoyed the day,’’ she said.
