MORE than 8000 people flocked to the 16th annual Rotary Jacaranda Festival on Saturday.

While the temperature reached 38 degrees, it did not stop the crowds from having a great time.

Festival co-ordinator Kenn Williams estimated between 8000 and 10,000 people attended the full day festival, which included 130 stalls, entertainment, an animal farm and a gourmet food zone.
