Grey Cup bash a success for city

All those who came to party are now leaving, but 2010 Grey Cup Festival organizers are glad they provided a great time — for the entire family.

All those who came to party are now leaving, but 2010 Grey Cup Festival organizers are glad they provided a great time — for the entire family.

“It was so cool just to see the little kids and (all) the things they could participate in; it’s not just a giant drinking affair anymore,” said Marty Forbes, festival media liaison.

Money raised from the rides will be donated to the Canadian military, a number Forbes expects could reach $20,000.

Events and team gatherings were held throughout the city over the weekend as an estimated 200,000 came to Edmonton.

“When you get to Grey Cup time, it’s Canada’s game,” said Forbes. “It was just fun to see everybody partying regardless of where they came from.”
