Over 1000 people enjoyed playgroup day celebrations at PCYC

IT WAS kid city at the Gladstone PCYC on Wednesday as more than 1000 children turned out for National Playgroup Day.

Children built items from cardboard boxes as their parents were encouraged to join in and unleash their inner child.

GAPDL Communities for Children's Debbie Flaherty said the wet weather did not deter nine playgroups and more than 1000 parents and children turning up for the event.

Special guests included Curtis the Turtle, Peppa Pig, D-Dinosaur and Constable Clancy Koala from the Gladstone police.

"P-Pig was a huge hit. All the kids loved her," Ms Flaherty said.

"We also had Bernie's Disco for little kids, with Reece the Recycle Bin and P-Pig burning the floor as they danced with the little kids."

Children made cars out of boxes with their parents.

While they couldn't drive their cars home, they did get to keep their boxy wheels.
