#MeridianWinterBlast with the CW50 Street Team
Campus Martius Park was filled with people as everyone celebrated the annual Meridian Winter Blast. This Detroit staple has been going strong for 12 years now and people of all ages enjoyed the many activities that the event had to offer. From the 30-foot winter slide, to the ice skating performances, smiles were on the faces of many. Not only were there plenty of activities, there were also amazing local cuisine. The restaurants surrounding the area were packed and people lined up to get food from the food trucks. With all the fun things to do, people were just happy to spend the day with their family enjoying the sights and sounds of the city. The CW50 Street Team enjoyed the Meridian Winter Blast and all the activities it had to offer!
