Earth Day Festivities, Festivals, and More!

This weekend, there are so many events going on around Greater Lansing that you may find your head spinning at the thought of choosing what to do. From concerts and music festivals to dance and theater performances, an ‘80s Prom at Lansing Shuffle and even a bar hop, you should probably break out your calendar to make sure you don’t overschedule.

Riverwalk Theatre also wraps up its run of “Steel Magnolias”this weekend, with performances 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday. The shows are sold out, but you can call the box office at 517-482-5700 to check for last-minute cancellations.

If you’re in the mood to dance, visit Lansing Shuffle 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday for an ‘80s Prom with themed drinks and music from DJ Face. The best-dressed attendees will be crowned Lansing Shuffle prom queen and king.

Though the Capital City Film Festival is over, “Creativity in the Time of COVID-19: Art for Equity and Social Justice,” is still on display at the Frandor Sears building, with satellite displays at the Lansing Art Gallery, REACH Studio Art Center, Impression 5 Science Center and Refugee Development Center. To see when each location is open, check out the exhibit’s website.

Finally, spend your Sunday afternoon enjoying beverages and perusing local goods at Downtown Lansing Inc.’s Makers Market & Bar Hop. Shop a variety of handmade goods from 30 local artists and makers at Lansing Brewing Co., MichiGrain Distillery and Capital City Market from 1 to 6 p.m.

Whatever you choose to do, I wish you the best of weekends.
