Lighting up the Harbour
Congratulations to everyone involved in this year’s Gladstone Harbour Festival. The weekend was a great success and a credit to the organizers, the sponsors, and especially the many volunteers who freely give up so much time to make the event a success.
A special shout out to all the sailors who braved some pretty tough conditions to participate in the iconic Brisbane -to-Gladstone race. The spectacular views of the boats arriving in our harbour and the live streaming of the boats in action was amazing.
QER was again this year proud to sponsor the Saturday night fireworks spectacular, though the Mayor tells me that as Council sponsors the entertainment for the evening, he always gets the credit for it!
There’s no doubt that one of the best things about living in a regional community like Gladstone is the strong community spirit that shines through at events like the Festival. It really pulls everyone together with a sense of common purpose. My favourite part is seeing the joy the kids get out of it.
QER is very proud to be part of the Gladstone Harbour Festival, and I’m already looking forward to next year!
