Get ready for the car boot sale

LOOK out Gladstone – the biggest markets to come to town are here.

Starting at 6am today and finishing at 3pm the inaugural Gladstone Swap Meet and Car Boot Sale is set to be a huge success.

There will be something for everyone and all money raised will be going towards local charities via the Rotary Club of South Gladstone.

It is an event for the whole family, with a huge range of stalls, remote controlled cars, trail bikes, car clubs, historical motorbikes, jumping castles, rides, food vendors and much more.

The event is themed to the tune of Christmas in July, with a major Christmas raffle with more than $1000 of goodies inside the enormous Christmas stocking on display at the swap meet.

As the event is held in conjunction with Camco CQ Motormania their will be plenty for the boys, with a V8 car simulator and the All Hours Glass Grid Girls on site from 8am to 9am.

It is not just locals getting involved as stallsholders will be coming in for the event from far and wide, with stall numbers continually increasing.

The Rotary Club of South Gladstone has had a lot of positive feedback about the event and it is expected that a lot of Gladstone families will be coming down to show their support.

The swap meet will be held at the Gladstone Showgrounds today, with admission free for children and $3 for adults.

For anymore information about the event you can head to www.gladstoneswapmeet.com.au or phone 0409 396 766 or just turn up at the showgrounds between 6am and 3pm for some family fun.
