Ports corporation holds bash for centenary

The celebratory concert, titled Centenary Sounds, is a free community event to be held at GPC's Marina stage from 2pm onwards, as a thank you to Gladstone locals for their support.

Home-grown Australian music identity Ian Moss will take the stage along with children's act Jelly Kids, Australia's Got Talent favourites The Twine, and Brisbane's Slip on Stereo with their summer sounds.

GPC chief executive Craig Doyle said the afternoon would be a great opportunity to relax and encouraged everyone to take advantage of the free event.

"The day is all about thanking the community for their ongoing support of Gladstone Ports Corporation," Mr Doyle said.

"I'm looking forward to seeing everyone for a great afternoon."

The night is expected to draw a large crowd after the announcement that a fireworks display will be going ahead after 7pm.

Lifesize Curtis the Turtle mascot, special guest, live painter Bob Gammage, food stalls and a face painter will also be present.
