Augusta Margaret River Times - - Front Page -

Au­gusta res­i­dents cel­e­brated news this week of a $24,000 Health­way grant sup­port­ing the pop­u­lar River Fes­ti­val for two years. Re­gional De­vel­op­ment Min­is­ter Terry Red­man vis­ited Au­gusta on Tues­day and con­grat­u­lated or­gan­is­ers for band­ing to­gether to save the fes­ti­val, which looked in dan­ger of col­laps­ing be­fore a new com­mit­tee took the reins last year. Fes­ti­val pres­i­dent Doug Thomp­son said the March 5 event was fully booked, with 60 stalls, live mu­sic, ex­tended fire­works, cus­tom cars and fam­ily attractions.
