Maitland Aroma Festival success

THE success of this weekend’s Aroma Festival in Maitland has blown organisers away.

Thousands flocked to Maitland Heritage Mall on Saturday to enjoy the many coffee and chocolate treats on offer, despite wild and windy conditions.

Spokeswoman for the event Rachel MacLucas said she was overwhelmed with the crowd which was about on par with those attending the event today.

She said a number of shops remained opened on Saturday afternoon to take advantage of the strong crowds, with some visitors making the trek from Sydney.
