Scare on the Square brings business to Downtown Lansing
LANSING, Mich. (WILX) -Halloween is vastly approaching, and the spooky season keeps on giving. Kids and adults alike dressed up in Downtown Lansing on Saturday and enjoyed local activities for this year’s Scare on the Square.
A road was shut down near the Capitol building for people dressed for the season and to set up their shops. Organizers say more than 40 vendors were there, including artists selling their work. Some were even painting live at the event.
The owner of Capital Hippie started the Scare on the Square event to bring more people to Downtown Lansing.
“I started throwing events 2 years ago when I was over at Middle Village and Downtown Lansing was pretty dead on Saturdays,” said Castle. “So, I started throwing markets so people would come down and have more than one place to shop retail. It’s kind of grown since then.”
