Crowds celebrate People's Day at Riverlink

FORGET about the Ekka. Ipswich shoppers had all the fun and excitement of the popular Brisbane show in their own backyard at Riverlink's annual Ekka Show Day.

On Wednesday, families enjoyed jumping castles, clown games, a petting zoo, face painting, Bumbles the Clown, as well as Frozen-themed singing, dancing and craft activities at the centre.

Riverlink marketing manager Robyn Bannister-Tyrrell said the day was a way to give back to loyal customers.

"Essentially it's a day to celebrate the show and to offer customers the chance to bring the little ones along for a free fun day if they can't get to the Ekka," she said.

"It is also a sale day where customers can pick up a bargain and also have the chance to win movie passes.

"Riverlink has been holding the show day for years - a thanks to customers in keeping with the spirit of the Ekka."

The shopping centre holds Ekka celebrations on People's Day each year.
