Dumfries Fling 'generated £140,000 for region'
The Dumfries Fling attracted more than 8,000 people and generated more than £140,000 for the local economy, according to new figures.
The four-day music, dance and performing arts event took place in freezing temperatures over the St Andrews weekend last year.
The report, by co-organiser DG Arts, said a quarter of those who attended were from outside the region.
The organisation said the attendance was surprising given the conditions.
The programme included a variety bands, a trapeze artist and a fire show, as well as the switch on of the town's Christmas lights.
