Many hundreds of people turned up to Scarness Park in Torquay on Sunday 10 July to join in the fun and raise money for Meals on Wheels in Hervey Bay and Maryborough. Among the attractions were Father Christmas (I think he might have been a little confused and got his diary dates mixed up!), Roxy the dinosaur, market stalls, ice creams, climbing wall, coffee van, bouncy castle, stationary engines plus the sausage sizzle, bacon and egg rolls and lamingtons all combining to make a great day out.
