(WJBK) - The countdown to this year's Meridian Winter Blast is on.
This year's event is Friday, January 26 - Sunday, January 28. Winter Blast is held during the last weekend of the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), and all NAIAS attendees are invited to enter the festival for free with an NAIAS admission stamp.
Winter Blast brings top entertainment, food and fun to Campus Martius Park downtown.
Organizer Jon Witz joined us on The Nine to tell us more about this year's event. He was joined by Cortina Local's Chef Luis Cisneros to tell us more about some of the food we can expect this year.
