The FedGroup Colour Me Crazy, Powered by Vodacom4U and OFM, is heading to Bloemfontein! SA’s “City of Roses” is set to host the event on Saturday, 08 February 2014, at Woodlands Conference and Function Venue.
Due to the massive demand after events held recently in Joburg and Cape Town Colour Me Crazy has decided to spread the colour tour to Bloemfontein to put on the biggest and most colourful day of fun and craziness the city has ever experienced before!
The event will consist of two parts – a 5km run packed with colour followed by an epic music festival with even more colour and a fantastic line-up of DJs and music performances. Picture a kaleidoscope of colour, energy, dancing, music and fun all in one massive event.
The event is open to individuals of all size and age, and kids 6 and under get in free! Everyone is invited to take part in this unique event! Whether you’re in a team or running the race solo – put on a wacky white outfit and get ready to walk, run, skip or dance your way through massive clouds of colour all the way to the end. For those who do not want to take part in the run – no worries, come and enjoy the awesome tunes and vibrant atmosphere at the music festival instead!
“We are so excited to be bringing the festival to Bloemfontein” says Tavis Brown, co-founder of Colour Me Crazy. “Bloemfontein is yet to see a colour festival on this scale and we cannot wait to show them what it is all about! We hope the city is prepared for the colour storm that is Colour Me Crazy!”
Headline sponsor of the event will continue to be leading independent financial services company FedGroup. Established in 1990, FedGroup’s fresh approach to Life is breaking the mould of the traditional insurance industry. Their distinct range of employee benefits is supported by cutting-edge, purpose built systems and is packaged according to the individual needs of a business and its employees.
“The group looks forward to the next instalment of Colour Me Crazy” said Scott Field, CFO of FedGroup. “Not only as the financial sponsors of the event, but as active participants in the fun too!”
Further sponsors that have been announced are Vodacom4U and Bloemfontein’s number one hit radio station - OFM.
