HUNGRY patrons dodged the rain to enjoy some delicious treats and dance to live music at Jimboomba's Eats and Beats on Friday night.

Rotary Park was packed for the event as local food trucks served up an array of dinner and dessert options for visitors.

Everything from jacket potatoes to pizzas to Hungarian langos were served up to fill hungry tummies.

For dessert, those with a sweet tooth enjoyed waffles and ice cream. Some sheltered under a tent while drinking hot coffee.

Other punters just sat in the rain to eat, wearing ponchos and huddled under umbrellas.

Canterbury College singer Briana Dinsdale, who released her debut album in February, headlined the entertainment.

Her first single, Ball and Chain, reached No.20 on the on the Country Songs Top 40 Australian Airplay chart.

The crowd had thinned out by the time she hit the stage as steady rain had sent some people home.

Before Dinsdale, Johanna and Jayden, the Dallas Linedancers and Susie Colley also performed.

The crowd was boot scootin' at the front of the stage, taking lessons from Debbie Dallas.

Woody and Jessie, from Toy Story, made an appearance, posing with visitors for pictures.

Division 9 councillor Scott Bannan was beamed into thousands of living rooms across the region, joining 7 News' Paul Burt for a live weather report.

Obviously Eats and Beats is on tour around the suburbs, but I want a yearly event that can be locked in for us

Mr Burt stood Cr Bannan on a higher section of a hill to even out the height difference between the two men in front of the camera.

Cr Bannan said it was another showcase event that the town could be proud of.

"It shows you how the Jimboomba community supports good family events," he said.

Cr Bannan hinted at a future food festival that Jimboomba could call its own.

"Obviously Eats and Beats is on tour around the suburbs, but I want a yearly event that can be locked in for us," he said.

"Something we can keep every year, look forward to and build on. My job is to bring more in more local events."
