Renting skates is $3, but this year the first 250 people each day will recieve free skates courtesy of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan!

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan Snowshoeing

As part of their "Get Fit" campaign at Motown Winter Blast, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan presents free snowshoeing! Snowshoes are available for free at Winter Blast in a variety of sizes for children and adults. Experience this fun, outdoor activity with the whole family!

Flagstar Bank Ice Garden

Beautifully carved and lighted ice sculptures again will be on display in the Flagstar Bank Ice Garden. Visitors can snap photos of their family and friends on one of two ornately crafted ice chairs, or even the ice bench. Or, visitors can swing by the sculpture of an Eskimo family and pose in any of the four open faces for memorable pictures. On-site ice carving demonstrations will take place during festival hours on Friday to showcase the creativity and talent of local carvers. Located in Cadillac Square.

Marshmallow Roasting

The popular marshmallow roasting brazarios are back, sponsored by Meridian Health Plan. Purchase a marshmallow or s'more kit and huddle around the fire roasting marshmallows! A fun activity for children and adults alike. The brazarios are located just outside the Atrium at Compuware World Headquarters.

The Return of the Dogsleds!

Originally from Bay City, Michigan native Amanda Vogel now lives near the border of Canada just south of International Falls, MN. IFalls is famously known as the Ice Box of the Nation for record low temperatures and gorgeous Rainy Lake. Amanda has been training and racing sled dogs for nearly 10 years and is excited for the opportunity to make her third appearance at Detroit's Motown Winter Blast. Don't worry folks, Amanda's retired lead dog and crowd favorite 'Buz' will be making the return trip to visit her Motown friends and to do some dashing around downtown Detroit!

Skating Demonstrations

Local professional and amateur figure skaters will be showcased as part of the Ice Skating Exhibitions, brought to you in 2013 by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. Anchored by the incredible Detroit Skating Club, this years demonstrations will also include the Great Expressions Hockey Shot Competition! Full line-up available here.

A special thank you to Huron-Clinton MetroParks for ensuring there will be snow this Winter Blast so we can all get out and play!
