Beach House Hotel reopening rocks foreshore

A CARNIVAL atmosphere took over the Scarness foreshore on Saturday as the Beach House Hotel invited the community to help celebrate its official opening.

The Esplanade was closed off as families enjoyed the kind of party which former Fraser Coast Mayor Mick Kruger said once earned the hotel the reputation of the region's premier entertainment venue.

Upstairs, 350 people were treated to a celebration dinner in the grand ballroom.

Much of the guest list was made up of dedicated staff and tradespeople who had helped shape the venue which owner Warren Persal told the crowd was "built to a standard, not a price".

The celebrations were capped off with a fireworks display to rival any other in recent years.
