In downtown Detroit, there’s only one time that ice skating is 100% free of charge. In order to fully take advantage of that next year, then consider attending Winter Blast 2015. Free ice skating in Detroit was sponsored, yet again, by St. John Providence Health Systems and in order to ensure that everyone had the ability to try free ice skating in Campus Martius for Winter Blast there was an option to rent ice skates. In order for ice skating rentals to take place, the guests of the Winter Blast in Detroit just had to ensure that they had three dollars and in exchange, they could skate until their heart was content.

If ice skating at the Detroit Winter Blast wasn’t your thing, then maybe ice sculptures were. Flagstar Bank sponsored quite possibly one of the most beautiful ice gardens at the 2014 Winter Blast.
