THE South Burnett Young Leaders hosted a top Kingaroy Christmas Carnival on Friday night.

The carnival offered rides and entertainment, and lots to see, do and buy.

Long lines of children and adults waited for the rides, with mums and dads joining their youngsters on the Electric Speedway.

Screams, smiles and laughter filled the air and all reports on social media sites were positive.

The streets around the carnival were packed and a festive feeling was evident.

Young Leaders project manager Brooke Wakely said the event was "amazing".

"Thanks to everyone for their continued support of the Kingaroy Christmas Carnival, your support and patronage makes it all worthwhile," she said on the Facebook page.

Ms Wakely said planning took place over nine months and the event had grown every year.

"We got a lot of support and were able to get more rides. It was really good," she said.

Ms Wakely said the young leaders had been involved for the past three years and the absence of rain added to the success.
