(Abbotsford, BC) Frothy. foamy, and loaded with fun, 5K Foam Fest is coming to Abbotsford on June 3rd.
As part of 365 Sport Inc.’s 2017 national tour, Foam Fest will be held across Canada but in only three BC locations — Nanaimo, Sun Peaks, and Abbotsford.
With over 22 obstacles, 2.5 million cubic feet of foam, mucky mud pits, kids zone, 20-foot ‘sky fall’ drop, bouncy castles, the worlds tallest portable inflatable waterslide, food and drink vendors, and an on-site DJ, everyone can participate in good clean fun. Participants will also receive a race-bib, tattoo, water, medal, beach towel, and a Chapman’s Sports Lolly.
As part of 365 Sport Inc.’s ‘give-back’ policy to feed families across Canada, each Foam Fest event partners with the location’s local food bank. Participants who bring a non-perishable food item will receive a custom branded 5k foam fest lanyard and 365 Sport Inc. will also make a financial contribution.
“Foam Fest is an energizing, non-competitive community event that gives locals an opportunity to come out and have fun. This is our fourth season as we keep scoping out new destinations to build partnerships with. We are thrilled to come to Abbotsford and show everyone what Foam Fest is made of. Based on last year’s attendance, we anticipate 70,000 participants nationwide, of which 6,000 will be coming from the Lower Mainland,” says Michael Lambert, Director of Partnerships.
With sport event hosting being such an important mix of attracting visitors to Abbotsford, Tourism Abbotsford is a strong supporter of the event.
Its great working with 365 Sports Inc., as they prepare to bring Foam Fest to Abbotsford. Part of what makes for a vibrant and united community, are large-scale events like this. We know our community will come out and join in on the fun, but we are also excited to host visitors as they explore our backyard,” says Craig Nichols, Executive Director of Tourism Abbotsford.
