Thousands have beary good picnic in Pialba
FOR 20 years the teddy bears have had their picnic in Hervey Bay to raise much-needed funds for Condy Park Preschool and Kindergarten.
Thousands of kids and parents armed with their cuddly companions enjoyed the Teddy Bears Picnic - this year held at the Discovery Sphere at the Hervey Bay Cultural Centre for the first time.
Kathryne Forgan-Flynn from Condy Park said there was a great turnout of about 3500.
"Everyone was very happy with the new venue," she said.
"It was our biggest turnout yet."
Ms Forgan-Flynn said the new venue was chosen because it was safer, with more space and better parking.
She said new additions Old McDonald's Farm and the rock wall were a great hit.
The picnic is expected to return to the same spot in 2015.
