Massive Easter line-up planned for CQ

Celebrate Easter in Central Queensland with a massive line-up of activities the whole family can enjoy.

From a virtual Easter egg hunt, car festival, harbourside celebrations, carnival rides, games and fireworks, there are plenty of things on offer over the Easter long weekend.

Councillor Rhodes Watson, said Livingstone, Rockhampton and Gladstone Regional Councils' event calendars were jam-packed.

"Across Livingstone, we're holding the ever-popular Easter egg hunt, movie nights, market stalls, live music, food trucks, rides and fireworks at the Yeppoon Foreshore, Emu Park's Bell Park, and Glendale's Sondra Lena Park," Mr Watson said.

"For the first time ever, Rockhampton will be revving it up with the Rockynats car festival, while in Gladstone the marina will come alive with harbourside celebrations."

He said there was something for everyone, from fantastic free entertainment, thrilling rides, high-octane action, to spectacular fireworks displays.

"The region has it all," he said.
