Media Advisory - The Canadian Cheese Rolling Festival Returns to British

WHISTLER, BC, Aug. 12 /CNW/ - Calling all crazy Canucks! Dairy Farmers of Canada's quirkiest cheese lovers festival is back for another year at Whistler Blackcomb.

The first one to chase the cheese wheel down the hill and cross the finish line wins! In addition to the races, thousands of spectators are expected to take part in the family fun including cheese Twister, cheese bowling, cheese seminars and of course, a Farmers Market full of delicious samples of Canadian cheese!


Hundreds of contestants will race after an 11-pound wheel of Cracked Pepper Verdelait cheese in an attempt to win the coveted title of 2010 Cheese Rolling Champion.
