Record crowds at Hunter Valley's Tocal Field Days 2021 | PHOTOS

PERFECT sunny weather and people's "desperation" to get back out and enjoy events after COVID-19 helped bring record crowds to Tocal Field Days over the weekend.

More than 11,500 people attended on Saturday, up from 7,000 at the last event in 2019.

"It's been absolutely amazing," Event Manager Wendy Franklin said.

"It's been a little bit of a wait in the car park but once they're here the crowds seem to be really buoyant and happy."

Organisers slashed an extra paddock to make way for more cars at the very popular Tocal Field Days event over the weekend.
