THIS Sunday marks the opening ceremony of the Gladstone Harbour Festival and the official crowning of our jubilee queen.

Today's queen quest profile features Kylie Dixon, 26.

1. Why have you decided to enter the competition?

I was crowned the 2006 fundraising queen and had such an amazing experience I wanted to enter again.

2. Why do you want to be queen and what do you hope to achieve?

I would like to be queen to help promote the festival and Gladstone throughout the community. With a large influx of new residents, many are not aware of the festival and what it means. I would like to have a chance to show people how great the festival is and what Gladstone has to offer.

3. What do you love most about Gladstone?

I am born and bred (here) and I think it is an amazing town to live in and look forward to raising my children here. I love fishing and camping. When you have the Great Barrier Reef in your backyard, it is hard to leave.

4. Finally, why should people vote for you?

As a previous winner of the Queen Quest, I have shown my commitment to Gladstone by raising more than $25,000 to support a charity. If I am lucky to become the 2012 jubilee queen I would be proud to showcase Gladstone to new and old residents.

Make sure you collect your coupons for harbour festival rides - available in Monday's edition of The Observer. Heaps of coupons - heaps of opportunities.
