On Sunday night the 28th of August The Melbourne Winter Festival experienced a spectacular turn out of teams of pro level ice skaters and ice hockey players to compete for the 2011 title of the Ice Blitz Fun Race sponsored by Spreets.com.
Each player of every team who had qualified to compete demonstrated
speed, agility, determination, bravery and vibrant team spirit.

SRS Productions would like to thank and congratulate client Echolot Pty Ltd for creating such a spectacular, scenic, aromatic and inspirational winter event this year, being The Melbourne Winter Festival. These eight months of being assigned to this project have gone so fast and I am regretful that 'winter' has come to an end! (In my mind it has been winter all year round- but the fun alpine-chalet style winter of The Winter Festival)
Working with and for Echolot has been such a pleasure. Together we worked tirelessly to source the perfect location, being that of the beautiful iconic Melbourne location of The Royal Exhibition Building & Melbourne Museum Forecourt, as well as sourcing highly skilled on-site event managers from Venues2Events who competed with many to get the job.
Thank you to those who formed partnerships with The Melbourne Winter Festival through SRS Productions; The IMAX, The Melbourne Museum & Royal Exhibition Building, The Medibank Ice House, The Melbourne Ice, Spreets.com.au , The Warwick Foundation, Voodoo Legwear, Lendan Skin care, Helly Hansen, Zet Photography, Track Visual, St Kilda News, and many more!
Thank you to our key event sponsors; Strepsils Cool, Lipton Chai Latte, Helly Hansen, Swiss Tourism, Austrian Airways, JCDcaux, NOVA FM and Hilton on The Park.
Many special thanks to the variety of talented entertainers who performed live music, cultural dance, professional figures skating and ice hockey demonstrations, and a BIG, HUGE, MASSIVE thanks to all those guys & girls who competed in Australia's first ever of it's kind; Ice Blitz Fun Race.
Last but certainly not least, thanks to all of you who talked about the Winter Festival on Face Book, Twitter and your respective blogs- 'real people talking' is the best advertising!
