WITH businesses closing early yesterday afternoon, everyone was kicking back and enjoying the fantastic music playing at the pubs across town.
As the Jacaranda Thursday markets came to a close and the festivities in Market Square wrapped up, it seemed like most of Grafton was squishing into the Clocktower Hotel for a few cold ones and to dance the night away.
It was hard to move on the dance floor with the music pumping, and people dancing, drinking and enjoying a chance to let loose on a Thursday afternoon.
At the Jacaranda Hotel, Double Shot was rocking out in the back of a truck, playing favourite tunes.
Singer Peter Creenaune was rocking a helicopter hat and an Angus Young-esque outfit on with "stick it to the man", among other things, written on his shirt.
The band entertained a few dedicated, delighted and excited individuals in the carpark while everyone else shied away from the hot weather.
In the hotel's beer garden, locals enjoyed a cool drink after a day of Jacaranda festivities.
