1000ft slip 'n' slide event approved by council
A 1000FT slip 'n' slide is set to come to Gladstone after an application to have the slide run down the main street was approved by council.
Gladstone PCYC applied to have part of Goondoon St closed off for the slide, which would form part of a fundraising event next month.
That application has now been approved.
Tickets will go on sale online today.
Goondoon St will be closed from Yarroon St to the yacht club for the event on September 13.
In what will be a first for Gladstone, excitement for the event is already gaining momentum.
"Over the past the PCYC has had rigid fundraising ideas," Gladstone PCYC manager Mick Newell said.
"We're prepared to look at things outside the square and events that haven't happened in Gladstone before.
"We all thought, wow that looks like fun."
Tickets are available here.
