WILD 60kmh winds on the Capricorn Coast and Rockhampton blew a number of plans off the itinerary yesterday.

Organisers at the last minute decided not to put up the rides for the Yeppoon Beach Party because the strong winds made it too dangerous.

Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry yesterday said the only things "going" at the beach party when she was there were a couple of State Emergency Service Tents and a Yeppoon Lions Club stall.

"It's a shame the weather put things off because the beach is normally choc-a-bloc," she said.

Although the rides didn't go ahead people were still hanging around the beach-front area, she said.

Dozens of people poured into the Yaamba Rd grounds yesterday as the Friends of the Heritage Village, with financial assistance from Rockhampton Regional Council, put on its monthly markets.

Children and their parents donned Australian flags, thongs and shorts.

Many enjoyed live entertainment from the Jacana bush dancers while others went on market rides.
