Lansing embraces the cold air with annual Winterfest

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) — The City of Lansing is turning its downtown area into a winter wonderland, with activities galore for its annual Winterfest event.

Lansing’s Winterfest will kick-off on Saturday, Feb. 26 and will be held from 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

This free, family-friendly event features a human version of hungry hungry hippos, live music, a “beach party,” a kayak race, hot chocolate stations, local vendors and public art sculptures hand crafted from ice.

Throughout the day, event goers can enjoy the Lansing River Trail from Old Town (Brenke Fish Ladder) to downtown Lansing (Rotary Park), or visit Washington Square.
