Sunfest tickets sell fast, some events fully booked

SUNfest 2015 tickets are selling fast after bookings opened last Wednesday.

Tickets for the annual youth holiday event, sponsored by Gladstone Regional Council, are a hot item every year with the 2015 program, being hosted from January 5-16, proving just as popular.

With more than 50 cultural, energetic, sporting, creative and entertaining activities to choose from, there is no shortage of options to beat holiday boredom for youths aged 12-17 years.

Already tickets to pistol shooting, Awoonga Headwaters Adventure Day, and go karts events have sold out, with places fast running out for guitar technique lessons, stand up paddle instruction, paintball, fused glass and skateboard art workshops and the Overnight Escape to Harmony Farm.

Younger children have also been catered for with the SUNfest Lil' Kids program providing a series of activities for 10-11 year olds.

Gladstone Region Mayor Gail Sellers encouraged parents thinking of registering their children into activities to get in quickly.

"Already a number of activities have sold out so anyone keen should buy their tickets now before it's too late," Cr Sellers said.

"There are still plenty of great activities available in the youth and Lil' Kids programs but remaining spots are filling fast."

The SUNfest 2015 program is available from local libraries or online here.

Tickets can be purchased online at www.gladecc.com.au or by phoning the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre on 4972 2822.

Tickets also can be purchased in person at the Gladstone Entertainment Centre box office, the Boyne Tannum Community Centre, Calliope Council Office, Miriam Vale Council Office and Mt Larcom and Agnes Water Rural Transaction Centres.
