Metro Detroit Bigs and Littles were invited as special guests to this year's Winterblast. Matches were allowed to start the fun an hour before the general public and each person received free lunch and a zipline ride! This was a blast for for everyone who attended and is why we are naming Meridian and John Witz and Associates as our February partners of the month!
