QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Kids and teens with special needs got to enjoy a summer tradition before we all do.

It's all part of the 5th annual Kare Carnival Day at the K of C Barbeque in Quincy. 

Roughly 60 kids and teens had the rides and carnival games all to themselves Thursday afternoon.

Parents said it lets kids be themselves in a stress-free environment since there are no crowds.

Parent Dana Ludwig said, "This helps tremendously because there is no wait for the line. The waiting is what he struggles with, so not having to wait for all the lines and kind of having that freedom makes it so much better for everybody."

The K of C Barbeque opens to the public Thursday night from 6 pm to 10 pm and continues until Sunday.
