It’s that time of year again! Big Freeze is here for it’s 8th year and as festivities begin at the MCG we’ve got everything you need to know so go grab your beanie and let’s begin!

After two years of interruptions, the Big Freeze will see the return of the much-loved March to the ‘G from Federation Square, along Daniher’s Way. Collingwood will also play host to their own community festival at the AIA Centre with activities the whole family will enjoy!

Then get ready to watch your favourite Aussie celebs take on the Big Freeze slide, plunging into the icy cold waters (featuring an array of hilariously crazy costumes).
