Time to party in Gladstone with events galore

WHAT a busy few days we are having here in town. We should all be very thankful to have so many activities to take part in.

For example, The Mikado opened to full houses at the GECC over the weekend.

It was a brilliant show and something that Gladstone should be very proud of.

One of the stars, Brent Lanzon, is certainly a superstar in the making.

To all the people involved on stage and behind it, a huge congratulations. You should all be very proud.

There are more shows this weekend so, as the saying goes, don't miss out.

Two weeks ago we had the Gladstone Country Music Festival at the GECC, which was a success with all the talent coming through the ranks.

The Agnes Blues Roots and Rock Festival starts up on Friday in 1770 and is sure to be a huge success if we support it.

Twenty bands over three days will be great, but if we don't attend, it could be the last.

The Gladstone Harbour Festival starts in eight days and is sure to be bigger and better than ever.

This year there will be five days of fun going right through to include Easter Sunday, something that hasn't happened for years.

Many traditional events attract thousands of onlookers and willing players - the raft race, lanterns street procession and the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race, so enjoy all the fun in one great place.

We are all lucky to have it here in Gladstone.

Throw in the mix events like Ecofest, Carols by Candlelight, the various charity balls, BAM markets and so much more, we should feel very proud.

A big shout-out to all the volunteers who put on and support these events.

Without you it just wouldn't happen. Thank you!
