Hundreds of kids have Christmas fun at Rocky Showgrounds

RAYLENE Robinson loves to see her kids have fun, and that's exactly what they were doing at this year's Rockhampton Special Children's Christmas Party.

The carer of 35 years took her seven children to the party where they got to sing and dance the day away.

"It's a great day, we've been coming for years," Raylene said.

For Raylene it's lovely to be able to bring the kids to the party and have a day off from their busy lives.

"They're all really good kids," she said.

"They all play sport, like squash and gymnastics.

"We're always out every weekend; we go for bike rides and have picnics in the park."

The Rockhampton Special Children's Christmas Party is a chance for kids to have a bit of fun and relax for the day.

The party saw hundreds of kids, their parents and carers head to the showgrounds to sing and dance with Ronald McDonald, watch a magic show and play games.

Organise Bev Hockings was over the moon with how the day turned out.

"The kids had a great time with Ronald McDonald who interacted with the kids and they all adored the magician," Ms Hockings said.

"The band The Toads kept the kids jumping and dancing all day.

"And Santa was kept busy in the toy shop," she said.
