Like the moment when you first step outside on a bitter morning, the Winter Blast stole the breath of Detroiters in Campus Martius Park this past weekend.

The long list of activities included ice skating, snowshoeing, an ice garden, dogsledding exhibitions, and the famous snow slide. When it came time to take a break and warm up, guests could step inside heated tents for live music, marshmallow roasting, and hot chocolate. If that wasn’t enough, the “Taste of Detroit” brought grub from favorites, including Bagger Dave’s, Prime 29 Steakhouse, Oye Crepe, and Bearclaw Coffee Co.
