1st Annual Syncrude WinterPLAY Carnival

I hope you are all staying bundled and warm. I was paroozing the Events Wood Buffalo website and came across some information about the new approach to the annual WinterPLAY festival which is now the WinterPLAY Carnival, check it out!

WinterPLAY 2011 February 25 - March 6
Celebrating Climate, Culture and People!

Beginning February 25th the Region of Wood Buffalo will be a snow globe of activity for ten fun-filled days. Syncrude WinterPLAY Carnival will have sport and leisure opportunities like a Curling Funspiel, Sno Pitch ball Tournament and the Shootout on the Snye Pond Hockey tournament. It will also feature opportunities for family fun at Vista Ridge, Tour North, Suncor Community Leisure Centre and Syncrude Sport and Wellness center.

For the first time ever in there will be an Ice Kingdom at Doug MacRae Park with international Ice Carvers, a four day Sled Dog Stage Race and an indoor Midway! The Syncrude WinterPLAY Carnival will have it all: sport, art, culture, entertainment and a regional competition for our King & Queen of the North.

Executive Director Claude Giroux says this is the one! “More than any other event we do, this is the one that will put Wood Buffalo on the map and make us a destination to all Albertans and Canadians. I am very proud to inaugurate what we are sure will be the premier event of its kind in Alberta”.
