Harbour festival parade to go ahead on Friday afternoon

THE 2014 Gladstone Harbour Festival Workforce International Street Parade has been rescheduled for Friday at 4pm, after being unable to proceed on Sunday because of wet weather.

Participants who had entered a nomination form for the parade that was due to be held on Sunday are asked to email to confirm their participation for the rescheduled parade, if they have not already done so.
