NOTHING stands in the way of a good time for Musterers.

Not even below zero temperatures.

Muster lovers partied on without a hitch on Thursday night despite the temperature dropping to a chilly three degrees by 10.30pm.

It may have been mighty cold, but many took the low temp as a cue to warm up in a fun way. Onesies were the dress of choice for many, which gave the Muster's onsite onesie store a roaring trade.

Dinosaurs, bees, skeletons, Angry Birds, cats and turtles could be seen everywhere from the Muster Club to the Main Stage, rugged up and dressed up.

Others could be seen wrapped in tarps on the hill at Main Stage, while others crowded around a campfire at the Crow Bar.

Some donned the Muster-standard Drizabones, ugg boots and beanies while others braved the temperatures in jeans and a singlet. While some called it an early night and retired to campsite fires, others keen for the nightlife had one solution; more rum.

And the mercury continued to drop into the night, with those who could sleep waking to frost on windscreens in what was a nearly frozen Amamoor State Forest yesterday morning.

While some Muster regulars said Thursday night brought with it the coldest Muster evening, enduring the bitter cold may well be worthwhile for clear skies and sun followed in the day.

Muster administration assitant Georgia Dein said the dry weather was a God-send for the event.

"During the day it's fantastic; people can get away with jeans and t-shirt," she said yesterday.
