The newly refurbished Margaret River main street will be closed to traffic today but open to everyone else as the Shire of Augusta-Margaret River leads a main street party.

From 3pm until 9pm today, any confusion between motorists and pedestrians will be momentarily dispelled as residents and main street traders mingle.

Residents can expect a wide array of stalls and street food along the strip, with music planned and the Fearn Avenue Festival Precinct hosting a Youth Chillout Zone, with live music and DJs as well as public seating.

Roving entertainers, children’s activities, alfresco restaurant dining and public art projects will also be happening.

“We’re not only proud of the extensive upgrades that have taken place, but we’re proud of how the community came together and showed patience and support while these necessary works were taking place,” Shire president Ian Earl said.

Local bands will include Blackwood Morris, Beeva Feeva, Salt Tree and Bunnyjuice. Undalup Association will run children’s workshops near the Urban Bean, which includes making wooden boomerangs and fabric frisbees.
