The annual Winter Blast ordered snow for metro Detroit extra early this year.

Detroit's yearly celebration of winter experiences in downtown Detroit will have major changes in 2019.

The family event that has originally been held in just one weekend is now expanding to four weekends starting on January 19, 2019.

Changes also include new activations, layout, logistics and admission policy. Guests can enjoy hot chocolate and live music while an ice sculptor creates art. 

The City of Detroit will host a press conference at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday to detail the new changes.
