THE scores of people who flocked from across Australia were not disappointed with the different entertainment on display over the three-day festival at Tara.

From the races to sheep shearing and a performance from The Voice 2017 winner Judah Kelly, the estimated 15,000 were treated to quite a show.

There was singing and dancing from several different cultures from around the world, but few captured what the Tara Festival was about like the duo of Alvin Rostant and Jorge Morales.

The performance duo played their Caribbean style music in front of large crowds all weekend.

Their performances epitomised what the festival is meant to be - different cultures expressing themselves and having fun doing so.

Alvin Rostant, originally from Trinidad and Tobago, said it was fantastic to perform at a festival that has so many different cultures represented.

"It is completely different to what people in Tara are use to,” he said.

"A lot of people enjoy it because it is the sounds of the Caribbean and people have a lot of fun with it.”
