Winter Blast a Hit

Campus Martius Park during Sunday's Motown Winter Blast

If you missed last weekend's Motown Winter Blast, you may have missed the cold and snow, but you also missed much more: ice skating, snow sledding, Model-T rides, food, and plain old fun with thousands of fellow Detroiters.

Created as a run-through for Superbowl XL being held next year in Detroit, the Winter Blast - hosted by the Superbowl XL Committee - was garnered a hit by both the Free Press and the Detroit News. I attended the festival on Sunday afternoon and agree that it was a definite success - I had a blast! (no pun intended). I am looking forward to seeing the expansion of next year's festival.
