Tweed Police are having a ball at Falls Festival

TWEED Police say they are having a "great time with the jovial crowd" at the first Falls Music and Arts Festival.

A statement was released by Tweed Byron LAC on their Facebook page about 8pm last night praising the crowd and their behaviour at the sold-out North Byron Parklands event.

Dog squad handlers from Tweed Byron and Richmond LAC joined out-of-town public order and riot officers and mounted police to patrol the festival.

Tweed Police Sergeant Stuart Crawford has been working at Falls and presented a pleasant picture of the festival.

"We've met some Sydney-siders, Sunshine Coast-ers, a navy fellow from Darwin and some groovers from Cootamundra. Music lovers from everywhere," he said.

"We'll be thrilled if the happy, peaceful vibe continues until the close of the festival, which is 2am Friday morning, and everyone gets home safely."

It seems Tweed Police have been doing a good job making their presence known, as festival attendees lined up for a selfie or two with friendly officers.

The festival finishes at 2am tomorrow.
