BUMPER crowds braved the rain to relish a jam-packed culture celebration.

Chesterfield Arts and Market Festival got off to a damp start on Thursday but people still flocked to the three-day event - including the ever-popular Garden of Light spectacular at Queen’s Park.

Tickets for some events, like the ghost walks and beer festival, sold out completely.
