THE GRASS was green, the sky was blue and the venue was perfect.
Patrick Chambers was one of many residents enjoying the rhythmic beats of The Bucketseats at Music in the Park - It's on for Young and Old at Tannum Blue Park on Saturday afternoon.
"It's wonderful just being here, I've never been at a better venue and there's a great band belting away," he said.
"The food is something to be desired at the pie van, it couldn't be bettered."
"Seniors Week has been great, it's for the aged, infirmed and insane," he said.
His wife Beryl Chambers said she found out about the event through the Seniors Week program.
Mrs Chambers said there was a nice atmosphere at the event.
"The Bucketseats are very good too," she said.
A number of Gladstone region residents took advantage of the perfect weather at the weekend to relax with a picnic blanket at the Tannum Blue event, where 35 brand new homes are currently under construction.
Started in 2012, Tannum Blue is located 23km south-east of Gladstone CBD and less than 30 minutes from Gladstone Airport.
