FAIRY floss, giant plush animals and fast rides were among the host of attractions at the Brassall State School fete.

Under a clear blue sky, hundreds of families from across Ipswich came to join in the fun and festivities on Sunday.

Lines of people queued patiently across the sport fields awaiting their chance for a ride or two before the afternoon was out.

Children of all ages could be seen dashing about with their faces painted and the prizes they had won grasped tightly.

The petting zoo was popular with the little ones who happily fed and patted the baby animals.

Aleesha Kelly used the fete as the ideal way to spend time with her niece and nephew who were visiting from interstate.

"They had an absolute ball," she said.

"The school did a fantastic job in providing lots of fun activities for young and old to enjoy."
