Artwalk 2019 was a celebration of local creative talent as thousands flocked to the Port Macquarie CBD on July 18.
From live street art to brightly colour lights and activities the fun was on for young and old as public spaces and businesses came alive for the artistic festival.
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council's group manager community place Lucilla Marshall said organisers were blown away with the turnout.
"This is by far our biggest year yet and it is so excellent to see so many people embracing Artwalk this year," Ms Marshall said.
"We changed the time of year for Artwalk and we were unsure if the community would respond but we are so incredibly happy with just how many people have come out to enjoy all the fun activities.
"The weather has been perfect and we are seeing so many families bringing young children and our local businesses are packed."
This was the fourth Artwalk in Port Macquarie and from humble beginnings this year 61 stalls spread out from Town Square to Murray Street and along Clarence Street.
"This year's Artwalk included digital projects, art exhibitions, interactive artworks, a sand art digital display and community projects along with a large number of artists in residencies in businesses," she said.
"There was certainly something for everyone and each year we keep getting bigger and bigger and this is certainly our biggest year yet.
"New in 2019 are our satellite events which we hope will encourage people to make a few days out of Artwalk and participate in our art classes and workshops on Friday and over the weekend (July 19-21).
"We have a silent disco again on July 19 and lots of artists will be showing people their crafts over the weekend so make sure you make the most of all the fun happening in town."
Ms Marshall said Artwalk is designed to provide artists the opportunity to interact with the public across any number of mediums.
"We have so many fantastic creatives in the Port Macquarie-Hastings region and Artwalk is a fantastic opportunity to showcase to the wider community just how talented our community members are."
