The Star Gold Coast kicked off its Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games week of celebrations on Wednesday 4 April. A group of fans and sporting enthusiasts were exhilarated by the live entertainment, DJs, nightly themed events, fireworks, a pop-up food stall and giant outdoor screens. The Star Gold Coast provided audiences with prime position outside of the stadiums to watch the action broadcast live on the Celebration Lawn and in the newly unveiled Sports Bar, cheering on the Australian team.
