Canstruction® Calgary, 2024


On Friday, April 5 #TeamBantrel participated in the Calgary Food Bank's Canstruction® Event at Southcentre Mall.  Bantrel was one of nine teams participating in the event.  

This year's theme was Retro Toys and Games, You CAN Play.  Our Calgary team designed and built an adorable 6-foot-high Pac Man, two ghosts, and framed the design with the maze walls.  The design utilized 2,800 cans!  All of which will be donated to the Calgary Food Bank.  The iconic yellow of our Pac Mac (thanks to Superstore's no-name brand) brought the design to life.

The structures will be on display until April 21 at Soutchcentre Mall - If you get a chance to go check out the designs - don't forget to vote on your favourite!

Did you Know?
The retro video game Pac-Man was originally released in 1980. The name is derived from the Japanese word Paku, which means ‘chomp’.  Players control Pac-Man through a maze eating flashing dots called ‘power pellets’ while avoiding four coloured ghosts, Blinky (red), Pinky (pink), Inky (cyan) and Clyde (orange).
