THE Jim Beam Uprising Beach Resort Festival of Music,Dance and Lights was hailed a success with hopes high that it will bring more tourists to the area.

Organisers of the festival, Pacific Coast Events and Promotions said they were looking to once again make Pacific Harbour a hub for tourists through the festival.

"A few years ago we had six or seven resorts within a three kilometre radius but some closed down and were taken over by new management but we are hoping that tourists and locals will start coming back with this," Pacific Coast Events and Promotions owner Darlene Underwood said.

She said the event cost $30,000 to stage with half of the costs covered by major sponsors, Jim Beam.

"In the past years that we have been holding the festival, we"ve had bus loads of tourists come down," she said.
