GLADSTONE Harbour Festival is gathering steam, as activities surge towards the frenetic Easter long weekend.

Fans have already flocked to the Manic Monday entertainment, with performers young and old taking to the Main Stage at Gladstone Marina.

Conveniently located next to the food plaza, the stage was a hive of activity.

On Monday night, dancers from Gladstone's Revolution Dance Studios lit up the stage, with a fun fusion of funk, hip hop and jazz dancing.

Musical entertainment came from The Corporates, performing hits from Stevie Wonder, the Blues Brothers and many more.

Last night, more locals were on show, with GLNG and ZINC's Talent Quest and Battle of the Bands.

Meanwhile, the ever-popular rides and sideshow alley are up and running at the festival site.

But folks wanting a festival retail fix will have to hold out until Friday and Saturday, when the markets get underway.

If you can't wait for that, wander down to the main stage tonight for Australia Pacific LNG's Wacky tonight.

Hypnotist Shane St James is ready to put the crowd under his spell.

Thursday night sees the start of school holidays - and is also Gladstone Ports Corporation Family Fun Night, with appearances for family favourites sure to delight all the kids.
