The Craze at MacDonald Island Park

MacDonald Island Park is delighted to announce the event and activity lineup for the Craze, Wood Buffalo’s annual free family-oriented New Year’s Eve extravaganza.
The action-packed day gets underway at 10 a.m. with the pancake breakfast and culminates with a choreographed fireworks display shortly after 6 p.m. Please see below for the full schedule of events.
The Craze is presented by Fort McMurray Realtors, which has signed on through 2015 as title partner for the event. The partnership was originally announced at the State of the Island gala in October.
“This figures to be the biggest and best Craze to date,” said Tim Reid, Chief Operating Officer at MacDonald Island Park. “Our staff has been working for months to deliver a free New Year’s Eve experience for families, and with the help of Fort McMurray Realtors and our other activity partners, we’re excited to invite the community to the Island to ring in the New Year.”
In addition to Fort McMurray Realtors as title partner, the event partners include (sponsored activity in parentheses):

  • Suncor Energy (Enchanted Forest Family Skate)
  • Rock 97.9 FM & Country 93.3 FM (WIPEOUT Mac Island)
  • Mix 103.7 FM (Much Music Ice Dance Party)
  • Julio Florez, Royal LePage True North Realty (Face Painting and Caricaturists)
  • ATCO Gas (Balloon Drop)
  • ATB Financial (Community Partner)
  • Clean Harbors and Meyers Management Consulting Group (Prize Partners)
Select partnership opportunities remain for the Craze. Interested parties are invited to contact Tracey Lewis, Coordinator, Advertising Sales for MacDonald Island Park, at 780-791-0070 ext. 5067.
Also at the Craze, MacDonald Island Park will be introducing the K-Rock Climbing Wall with a press conference and ribbon cutting ceremony at 1:30 p.m. in the Squash, Racquetball, and Rock Climbing area, located on the first floor of the Suncor Community Leisure Centre.
