LOCALS turned out in droves to celebrate the re-opening of the Tasman Highway on Sunday August 22.
The Orford event was a chance for the Department of State Growth to thank the communities of the South East Coast for their patience and understanding during the recent road closure.
The free community party was held at Our Park in Orford under sunny skies. The event also recognised the work of all the contractors, suppliers and others involved with the project.
Tasmanian country/pop singer/songwriter Ange Boxall entertained.
The event was catered for by a number of East Coast providers, including Buckland Road House, Wattlebanks Coastal, Spring Bay Pizza, The Fish Van – Triabunna, Rotary Tasmania, Wheel Good Mobile Coffee, and Lickalicious Ice cream.
