The Bathurst Winter Festival lived up to the season, with chilly and windy weather plaguing the day.
But it didn't stop the crowds, with festival-goers filling up on mulled wine and cider to keep themselves warm.
Bilpin Ciders, who made the trip to Bathurst from the Blue Mountains, was serving mulled cider instead of mulled wine.
Seller Joes Jambroes said mulled cider has always proven popular over the years.
"I think every winter festival I've been to, I've sold 75 per cent of my warmed cider compared to my cool cider," he said.
"The Bathurst Regional Council organises this perfectly every year we come here. We also come here for the Blayney to Bathurst race as well and everything is organised as it should be."
One food vendor that made to trip to Bathurst was the Orange-based Smoking Brothers, which specialises in southern American-style barbecue cuisine.
Chef Floss Smith said while Saturday seemed slower in terms of people, he did say it was much colder than last year.
He also noticed there was quite a few out-of-towners at the festival
"We've noticed there's a couple of people from Orange and there was actually a lady from Young here earlier," he said.
