Carousels and bouncy castles were among the attractions enjoyed by special needs children during a day out organised by Barking Rotary Club.
Pupils from Eastbury Primary School in Barking were among the 800 children from across London who attended the event in Central Park last Wednesday.
Rotarian Dennis Bloomfield, who organised the event, said: “It went very well indeed and everybody seemed to enjoy themselves. The two circus shows were absolutely full to the brim.”
The mayor of Barking and Dagenham, Cllr Simon Bremner, added: “It’s a great opportunity for all of the children to meet together and make friends and to go on things like this that they probably can’t join in with mainstream children.”
Rotarian and ex-fireman Alec Everitt held the inaugural Rotary Kids Out day 20 years ago to help ensure that children with disabilities could have fun and make new friends.
