Get down and dirty at the Melbourne Foam Fest
Melbourne's one and only 5km Foam Fest is back for 2019. Early bird tickets are available for purchase now, but only until Friday May 17th. So if you don't want to miss out on a huge saving, get your tickets pronto! Full price tickets for this year's Foam Fest will cost $100, but early bird tickets are a mere $55 so it definitely pays to get in quickly.
If you're wondering what a Foam Fest is, read on for more details. 2.5 million cubic feet of foam will be pumped out as you make your way around a 5km course, encountering fun and messy obstacles as you go. There will be 22 different obstacles including the world's largest inflatable slide. Other areas to tackle are the mud pits, cargo climb, spider web forest and foam zone. And just think – all this fun can be classed as exercise so no need to go to the gym for at least a fortnight, right?
Foam Fest 2019 is appearing at 6 different locations across Australia. The Melbourne Foam Fest is being held in Myrniong at St Annes Vineyards in Melbourne's West, on Saturday 30th November. Not only will it be super fun but you will be contributing to the Make-A-Wish Foundation which is a very worthwhile cause. You can read more about it here. There are family passes on offer at a discounted rate so the whole tribe can get in on the action.
Your ticket to the Foam Fest also includes some goodies including a finishers medal, a beach towel, a race bib and access to water stations along the way as well as showers at the end. The site also plays host to a Festival and Vendor Village where you can buy food and drinks, listen to DJs spinning some energising tunes and let your kids go wild in the Kids Free Fun Zone (not to be confused with a Kid-Free Fun Zone!).
All of this sounds like way too much fun to handle. There is a gallery on the Foam Fest website which shows you some of the fun-tastic obstacles you will encounter and boy do they look amazing. For all the nitty gritty go to the FAQ page which should answer any questions you have. If you're already sold, book your tickets here. Happy Foaming!!
