FAIRY floss, face painting and plenty of fun activities combined with the spring sunshine guaranteed success at the first Country Hope Children's Day on Saturday.
Hundreds of kids flocked to Memorial Park to join in the sumo wrestling, jumping castle, sausage sizzle and more.
Margaret Moore from Country Hope's fund-raising committee said the group wanted to host an event for the kids as a change from the usual adult functions.
"We never have anything for the kids but this was absolutely a huge success," Mrs Moore said.
"Everybody really enjoyed their day there were lots of happy kids which was really good to see because that's what we set out to do.
"We'll absolutely be looking at running it again next year."
Mrs Moore said the wrestling ring was a hit, with kids donning sumo suits and relishing the opportunity to knock into each other.
"The kids were queued up all morning for face painting, they just love it," she said.
"The fairy floss was a big hit too."
Country Hope's next fund-raiser will be the Festival of Gardens in October.
