SUNfest 2018 ticket sales to open from 9am on November 29

The wait is almost over for keen SUNfest 2018 participants with ticket sales available from 9am tomorrow (Weds, Nov 29).

Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said tickets for Council’s annual youth holiday program, from January 8 to 19, were expected to sell fast with limited places available for some activities.

"The 2018 SUNfest program offers a selection of activities, events and workshops which have been chosen to appeal to our 11 to 17-year-old residents," Councillor Burnett said.

"There are some exciting new additions to the 2018 SUNfest program including activities involving coding, technology, engineering and computer design."

Councillor Cindi Bush said SUNfest tickets were ideal Christmas gifts and could be purchased online, by phone, or in person at various Gladstone Regional Council centres.

"SUNfest 2018 can take the hassle out of buying Christmas gifts for teenagers and are ideal, quick and easy presents to purchase," Cr Bush said.

"There’s something to suit different interests from adrenaline-pumping and sporting activities to cooking, photography, drama, craft, make up, fishing, dance, music and art.

"Fun workshops offer the chance to make new friends, learn a new skill or try something different across our region."

Some of the other new additions to the 2018 program include drama games, yoga, cricket, flower crown design, Crossfit and magazine design.

"Activities which prove popular each year are again on offer for our younger generations to enjoy," Cr Bush said.
