FOR Milli Davis, the CQ Convey was a day she'll never forget.

After winning a competition, Milli spent the morning with The Voice contestant Taila Gouge.

Together they rode in style from CQUniversity to Paradise Lagoons, leading the 125-strong truck convoy through the city.

CQ Convoy Inc vice president Steve Latimer said the day was all about doing something for the kids.

Proceeds from the day went to children's wards in Central and Central West Queensland hospitals.

There was plenty for the family to do once the convoy ended, with helicopter rides, barrel racing and games all on offer at Paradise Lagoons.

Taila Gouge, X-Factor contestant James Johnston and local bands Whisky Remorse and Shaken Knot Stirred also performed for the crowds.

Mr Latimer said about 800 people came through the gates.

He said CQ Convoy Inc had raised about $40,000 in the lead up to the Family Fun Day and hoped they would have more than $50,000 following the event.

Although this is the first CQ Convoy, Mr Latimer said it wouldn't be the last.

He said a lot of hard work had gone into making the convoy an annual event.

Laura Francis was one of the people who brought her family out for the day.

Her husband was involved in the truck convoy and Laura said it was great to take part for a worthy cause.

"It's a great day out for the family," she said.
