RETURNING FAVORITE ACTIVITIESA winter wonderland in the form of a street full of snow will once again be created at the festival, courtesy of the snow cannon from Huron-Clinton Metro Parks, allowing attendees to have fun and get active with activities including snow shoeing and dog sledding.

Sledracer and Michigan native, Amanda Vogel, and the Snomad Racing Sled Dogs return for their fourth appearance at Winter Blast. Originally from Bay City, Vogel has been training and racing sled dogs for nearly 10 years.

For attendees looking for some physical activity, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan will offer free snowshoeing for the weekend. Snowshoes in adult and kid sizes will be available so festivalgoers can get moving and incorporate an element of fitness into their Winter Blast visit.

Once again, Winter Blast visitors can take advantage of their only opportunity to enjoy free ice skating at the Campus Martius Park rink courtesy of Charter One Bank. In addition, local professional and amateur figure skaters will be showcased as part of the Ice Skating Exhibitions. Synchronized ice-skating teams, up-and-coming couples, speed skating demonstrations and four distinct ice skating clubs, including the legendary Detroit Skating Club, will entertain the crowds throughout the weekend.
