LG Slid into Red Bull Crashed Ice

I share this not because it has much to do with Niagara Falls specifically, but because it goes to show you how big that Red Bull Crashed Ice event was. There were lots of big name brands involved with it.

From a PR Newswire press release:

While ice-hockey aces hurtled down the track at the Niagara Falls stop of the Red Bull Crashed Ice World Series, attendees also enjoyed screaming speeds off the track with the newest LG smartphone, the LG Optimus G.

LG jumped on board as a sponsor for the Niagara Falls stop of the tour from November 30 to December 1, 2012. The company brought the best viewing screens, an opportunity for fans to check-out the Optimus G, and integrated the device into the event as the ticket scanner for all gated areas.

“Participating in Red Bull Crashed Ice was a natural fit for LG,” said Mallika Kazim, director, brand marketing, LG Canada. “With its quad-core processor and LTE functionality, the Optimus G is dynamic and exciting, just like Crashed Ice.”

As I tweeted on Saturday, I came down on Saturday with my family to try and see some of the Red Bull Crashed Ice competition, but there were no events during the day. I also tried to watch it on RedBull.TV but at the time I checked they still weren’t showing anything.

I know there are loads of articles about the event, but here are some that I found that I thought were worth sharing:

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Would you like some Arkells with your Crashed Ice?

Following Friday’s elimination round of the Red Bull Crashed Ice, another party gets underway on Victoria Ave. headlined by the Juno-winning Hamilton band. Clifton Hill to Magdalen St. will be blocked off for the five-hour bash which also features Niagara Falls band The Roxwells, Burlington’s Teenage Kicks and Hamilton’s Young Rivals.

Admission is free for the licensed event, but limited to 4,000 people.
