Moana, up and coming performers, a police car and prizes are just some of the attractions around Blacktown for McHappy Day tomorrow.

Saturday, October 14 will be the biggest fundraiser of the year for Ronald McDonald House Charities, with $2 from every Big Mac sold going to helping seriously ill children and their families.

Sales from Ronald socks, helping hands and donations will also go toward the charity as restaurants nationwide aim to raise a record $4.1 million.

Arndell Park McDonald’s will feature performances from local singers Jayd Luna and Ebony Costantini, as well as dancers from Evans High School, World of Pole and Nadia’s Dance School.

Moana and a clown will be doing face-painting while a raffle will feature prizes including two one-day passes to Wet’n’Wild.

Mayor Stephen Bali is taking a break from campaigning on the day of the by-election to stop by the store. 

At McDonald’s Blacktown, the 1st Kings Langley Scoutsgroup will be collecting donations.
