Celebrate the official opening of Stockland Hervey Bay

STOCKLAND Hervey Bay will celebrate the grand opening of its $125 million redevelopment with fun family activities and entertainment on Wednesday, April 22.

The centre will be bursting with fabulous food, fashion and fun-filled family activities, including a free lunch from Shoreline cafe retailers, cooking demos from My Kitchen Rules winner and Hervey Bay local Dan Mulheron, plus kids' face painting and sand craft, live local music acts, fashion shows, giveaways and more.

There will be live music all day, with performances by Frank Benn and Fonoti, and fashion parades with the latest in season looks at noon and 1.30pm.

Shoppers will be treated to a "taster" of the three-month Hervey Bay Festival, due to launch next Friday with three months celebrating what makes Hervey Bay so special and unique.

"To celebrate our shared success, we're officially launching The Hervey Bay Festival, an action-packed three months of events," Stockland managing director John Schroder said.

May will be the Tastes of Hervey Bay, June will be the Styles of Hervey Bay and July will conclude with the Hervey Bay Sessions.
