Winter doesn’t have to be a time for hibernation and undue weight gain. Case in point, Campus Martius’ Winter Blast presents any number of opportunities to get out of the house and enjoy the great outdoors. Patrons can lace up their ice skates and hit the Rink, glide down a zip line, coast down the giant winter slide, roast marshmallows, and nosh on food truck fare. Between outdoor activities, they can hit a heated tent and enjoy live music, family-friendly entertainment, and beer and cocktails. Plus, the whole thing gets you downtown and close to bars, restaurants, and shopping. Runs 4 p.m.-11 p.m. on Friday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. on Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday; 1 Campus Martius, Detroit;; 248-541-7550; admission is three cans of food or $3 that will be directly donated to Matrix Human Services.
