There was a street festival, rogue drones, plastic hardhats, lookalike beards, balloons, and signs galore…
They were lining up from Friday morning to get a glimpse inside the finished renovations of The Block in Elsternwick yesterday.
An estimated crowd of more than 20,000 people lined Regent Street, and adjoining neighbourhood roads, just to step inside the 5 homes which will go under the hammer within 2 weeks.
Scott Cam declared the contestants a bunch of “drama queens” before complimenting them on their renovation skill and cutting the ribbon at 10am. Joined by Shelley Craft, contestants spent the day signing autographs and posing for selfies, while Family Food Fight cast swung by for an obligatory cross-promotion.
The annual Open for Inspection will feature on air on Tuesday October 24th.
