Crowds gather for Jumpers and Jazz Festival

WARWICK'S wonderful Jumpers and Jazz festival drew visitors from our region and further afield this weekend.

Hannah Hoffman travelled from Toowoomba with her two daughters Evie and Lucy to check out the dressed-up trees, crocheted caravan and live jazz.

"You can see why we're here," Mrs Hoffman laughed.

The talented mother created both of her daughters' beanies and wraps.

"The girls are having a great time today."

Warwick Art Gallery director Karina Devine said the festival team was stoked with the weekend's turnout.

"We had over 2000 people here Saturday for Jazz at The Gallery," she said.

"That's an increase on last year's... a really great day. I heard the street was equally busy."

Ms Devine said Jumpers and Jazz was running smoothly, drawing in a crowd of locals and tourists from across Australia.

"There have been so many positive comments and lots of interesting characters travelling to the festival and getting involved," she said.

She said the efforts of the volunteers had been the biggest highlight so far.

"The highlight was the thanks we received from the first bus group we had our volunteer greeters assigned to."

There is still plenty to see and do for the remainder of the festival.

Next weekend features the the Saturday Stroll 'n' Swing, the Suitcase Rummage market, the Sourced Southern Downs Flavours market and the Warwick Potters craft markets with free live jazz on Sunday.
