Crowdfunding campaign seeks to bring lighted market to Lansing riverfront on summer Fridays

Want to paddle a kayak, listen to music or a sip a drink while strolling along the Grand River after nightfall?

A crowdfunding effort is underway to create a lighted summer market in the Rotary Park area just east of downtown Lansing.

The “Afterglow Market” will take place on Fridays between 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. from July 2 to Sept. 3.  It’s slated to feature entertainment and local vendors, including food trucks.
