CBD revamp celebrations begin

AFTER seven months of work, the Maryborough CBD Revitalisation Project is about to be completed.

To celebrate the winding up of the multi-million dollar make-over, the Fraser Coast Regional Council and CBD businesses are celebrating with a party tomorrow night from 4 to 8pm.

City and Town Centre Development Portfolio Councillor Daniel Sanderson said the party would be a "great opportunity to see how the CBD has been transformed."

"You will be able to see some of the artworks installed as part of the Maryborough Story Trail in Kings Lane; the new exposed aggregate footpaths and lighting and join the shop owners in celebrating," Cr Sanderson said.

"The party is as much about showcasing the shops as it is about the $3.2 million CBD revitalisation works undertaken by JAC Civil."

Businesses in the CBD will be selling food and drinks at the party, and a bar will be available for adults.

There will be giant games and rides, including a mechanical bull; street art, stories and street performers.
