QUEENS Park came alive yesterday as Orion Springfield Kids Kingdom took over the venue.
Ipswich Events Corporation chairman Paul Casos said the event was a great way to finish this year's festival, with rides, food stalls, free face painting, roving performers and popular acts such as Ben 10 and the Amazing Drumming Monkeys.
"The crowds just seem to get bigger and bigger each year," Mr Casos said.
"It was a beautiful day.
"The crowd seemed to be in a patriotic mood.
"They attended Anzac Day services and called into the park on their way home.
"The way we started with the Ipswich Orpheus Chorale singing traditional Australian songs seemed to blend perfectly into the afternoon of activities."
Gailes resident Rowena Donmall was among those who enjoyed the festivities, relaxing with two-year-old daughter Sienna and extended family.
"I brought my sister and her two kids. They're from the north side of Brisbane," Ms Donmall said.
"It's a nice family day out.
"Sienna is a bit little for the rides but she likes the arts and crafts."
For Tracy Baker it was an opportunity to spend some quality time with her sons, two-year-old Flynn and four-year-old Drew.
"The boys have had an absolute ball," she said.
"They loved Ben 10."
