MASSIVE INJECTION OF SCOUT PEOPLE INTO THE FRASER COAST
THE procession of buses that will bring in 11,500 scouts and their leaders to Maryborough is already well on its way as the set-up continues for the 2013 Australian Scout Jamboree.
Arrivals at Maryborough Showgrounds are expected to continue through to late on Tuesday afternoon.
The grounds have been turned into a city-within-a-city for the event, including a sound stage, camping sections for each state and on-site activity areas.
Fireworks will be let off on Wednesday night to welcome the massive crowd before the scouts begin their first activities around the region on Thursday.
