IT WAS dancing room only on Friday night.

Children packed the Kingaroy Town Hall for the first Blue Light Disco for 2013.

Kingaroy Police Sergeant Duane Frank said 525 children turned out for a night of fun.

"It has been many years since we have seen that many children attend," he said.

"We had a lot of first-timers and new kids attend.

"Feedback from them and their parents was that they will certainly continue to attend."

For those who are unfamiliar with Blue Light Discos in Kingaroy, the event is for children up to 14 years with a cover charge of $5 for a completely supervised night of fun.

"For their $5 they get entry, entertainment and a ticket into the multi-prize draw," Sgt Frank said.

"We have major prize draws during the night in which things like iPod docking stations, iPads, bikes, sporting equipment, a range of toys, board games, educational items and much more are given away.

"We also have a canteen open from 6pm... The doors open until 8.30, when the event finishes."

Organisers also stipulate children must stay within the hall until collected by their parents or carers from inside the venue.
