Cranking out Xtreme fun
CRANKFEST Xtreme didn't escape the deluge of rain that hit Evans Head two weekends ago, but those who joined in the fun didn't seem to mind.
Despite the skateboarding competition being washed out, activities on the hip-hop stage were jumping.
The Break A Move stage was packed with young people who watched local dancers battle it out to the catchy beat of hip-hop music.
"The young people here are just totally into it," Crankfest Xtreme organiser Catherine O'Halloran said on the day.
"Crankfest is designed to be a showcase of young local talent, because a lot of these kids don't have the opportunity to perform at events.
"The quality of the performers has been outstanding."
Festival attendees had the opportunity to get actively involved in a range of activities.
"It was born as a hip-hop festival but it's starting to diversify now," Ms O'Halloran said. "We have a lot of activities which are also workshops, so we're actually teaching young people skills."
There were visual art classes, circus performance workshops and a flash dance performance by local dance schools.
