Lansing Area This Weekend: Craft Shows, Holiday Parades and More
Once you're stuffed with stuffing and tired of turkey, here are some fun things to do around Lansing during Thanksgiving Weekend.
Lansing Holiday Light Show
Billed as the area's only drive-thru event of its kind, the Lansing Holiday Light Show begins this weekend at Lansing Cottonwood Campground. Travel through more than a half-mile of unique holiday light displays, all set to musical sounds of the season.
Season of Light
History shows that a lot of our holiday traditions are rooted in astronomical events. Beginning Thanksgiving Weekend and continuing throughout December, MSU's Abrams Planetarium presents Season of Light, a holiday program that explores the relationship between the stars and our celebration of Christmas.
Those bright lights Friday night (11/25) in Shiawassee County? That's just Glow Owosso, the community's annual kickoff to Christmas! The event features a Glow Parade, the lighting of the downtown Christmas tree, visits with Santa, and post-parade horse and carriage rides.
Get to steppin'! Lansing Area Littles hosts a Stroller Walk on the campus of Michigan State University this Saturday (11/26) beginning at 9am. Advance registration is requested for this free paved-trail walk. Strollers, scooters and bikes are all welcome; kids must remain with parent/guardian.
Small Business Craft & Vendor Show
Meridian Mall in Okemos is the backdrop for a Small Business Craft & Vendor Show this Saturday (11/26) and Sunday (11/27) during mall business hours. Shop one-of-a-kind offerings from a myriad of Michigan-based small businesses.
Lansing Collectible Show
The Lansing Collectible Show begins at 10am this Saturday (11/26) at Lansing Mall. More than 100 collectible and memorabilia dealers from throughout the region will be on-site with sports items, comics, autographs, anime and more.
Williamston Pop Up Art & Craft Show
