At the weekend, the small village of Yetman celebrated proudly with a 'Yes We Can' music festival.
The event was organised by the Yetman Hall and Progress Assosication and saw overwhelming support from both local and regional visitors.
A new committee consisting of local residents Jen Kilner, Bec King, Charmaine Potter, Kate Dight, Charmaine Johnston and Suz Frankcom was assembled for the event.
The festival took aim at raising spirits for locals and provided social, and mental relief towards the drought.
During the day, well-recognised music artists and entertainers Pete Denahy, Rockabilly trio Christian Power and the Lonesome Train as well as many local artists.
Food stalls, jumping castles, face painting, markets, and a colour run provided great entertainment and activities.
Yetman residents thoroughly enjoyed the festival and were thrilled to see the area thriving.
"The festival was a great concept to lighten up everyone's life and lift spirits within the area," a local claimed.
The festival was funded through grants provided by the Australian Government's Drought Communities Programme, Inverell Shire Council, Hunter New England, Central Coast Primary Health Network and Australia Post.
