16 Mar EASTER IN GLADSTONE BIGGER AND BETTER THAN EVER!
Gladstone is the place to be this Easter, with an abundance of fun, food, festivals and entertainment on offer for the whole family.
Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett is encouraging locals to holiday at home and join in the celebrations and festivities! “This year, Easter in Gladstone is going to be awesome – bigger and better, with attractions to suit everyone,” Cr Burnett explained.
The annual Gladstone Harbour Festival is steeped in tradition and offers free festival and sideshow alley entertainment. Along with the festival, comes all the excitement of the 71st Brisbane to Gladstone (B2G) Yacht Race. Cr Burnett said Council was proud to support the introduction of an exciting new concept to complement this year’s race.
The 2019 Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race will have its very own finish line precinct known as, The Village, located along Flinders Parade at the East Shores precinct. Operating over three days and offering a variety of hospitality and entertainment options there is sure to be something for everyone.
Brisbane to Gladstone Village will add premium entertainment to Gladstone’s Easter celebrations for members of the community, yacht race crews and their families. “Brisbane to Gladstone Village along the Auckland Creek waterfront will host a Brisbane to Gladstone Line Crossing Party, a Yachtsman’s Long Lunch and see the return of the popular and much-loved, Seafood Festival,” Cr Burnett said. “Brisbane to Gladstone Village is an event not to be missed and will showcase Gladstone as a sophisticated ‘Port City’ of Australia. The event will celebrate the Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race, one of the oldest yachting races in Australia, which has become a Queensland icon,” Cr Burnett continued.
Tickets for the Brisbane to Gladstone Village events are on sale now and can be purchased through the Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre.
