Great musical acts and high-quality sporting events often draw big crowds.
It seems tasty Italian sweets and savoury desserts also do.
Well, the fifth annual Cannoli Day at Pasticceria Massimo Papa certainly did on Sunday.
The popular Fairy Meadow pasticceria was busier than usual on Sunday, much to the pleasure of owner Massimo Papa.
As these photos show, hundreds of people were happy to wait in line to enjoy the many irresistible, authentic Italian sweets and savoury items available.
This line started from 8am and continued throughout the day.
To celebrate its fifth anniversary in Fairy Meadow, people could buy cannoli for half the price, with small cannolis costing $1 and large ones $2.
Well-known pastry chef Massimo Papa expected a good turnout considering he is known throughout the country for his ricotta cheesecake.
But Mr Papa was 'overjoyed' to see thousands turn out on Sunday.
"When we were based in Sydney we had some big events but this is definitely the biggest we've had here," he said. "It has been non-stop all day.
"We've been going for just over four hours now and I reckon we've easily passed the 1000 people mark.
"We had 7000 cannoli ready but we've had to make much more because we've run out.
"The way we are going we are probably going to make 10-12,000 cannolis. We won't stop until closing time."
