Unpredictable weather yesterday did not stop hordes of people from visiting Harts Black Horse Brewery in Lawrence.

Daffodil Dayze organiser Kim "Dusty" Murtagh said about 300 people came through the gate, which was great, considering the weather.

"I was really worried about today, but it's been lovely," she said.

Visitors were treated to hammering contests (driving giant nails into a log), a Ping-Pong raffle, where Ping-Pong balls were dropped into the brewery creek near the waterfall and the first ball to reach the bridge won $100, bagpipe and banjo music and various stalls.

Proceeds from the Harts Daffodil Charitable Trust Daffodil Dayze would be given to the Lawrence Toy Library, Ms Murtagh said.

"It's been a big success this year. We are really happy with the result."
