Rosalie locals enjoyed free ice cream and festivities on Thursday 7 July with the Grand Opening Party for the suburb’s new Baskin-Robbins’ store.

The Grand Opening Party drew in a crowd of over 1,200, as the first 10 guests won a year’s supply of Baskin-Robbins ice cream. Local residents, Sharon Thomas and Eleny Hooijer eagerly waited outside the Rosalie store from 5:30am the morning of the Grand Opening Party. A local Rosalie resident, Mr Cordell Sanders also won an Apple iPad mini as part of the festivities.
