This will be the 28th year that the City of Lansing kicks off the holiday season with the annual winter/holiday celebration, Silver Bells in the City. It is safe to say that this event just keeps getting better and better and bigger and bigger. Much of the focus is on the fireworks display over the State Capitol building and the official lighting of Michigan’s holiday tree – but you should know the list of activities encompasses dozens of locations all over downtown.
This year Silver Bells in the City is scheduled for November 16th in downtown Lansing – most festivities begin at 5pm. A little later in the evening, at 7:45 teen star Coco Jones will be performing Live in Concert on the Capitol steps. The Coco Jones concert is sponsored by Radio Disney. You can learn more about Coco Jones by going to her website, www.therealcocojones.com
Other festivities include a Silver Bells Fun Run and a Saturday morning, day after Silver Bells Breakfast with Santa. To learn more about all of the Silver Bells activities, visit the official website for a map and legend with details of special things you simply won’t want to miss.
With all the excitement, fireworks, and electric light parade for us at Cravings Gourmet Popcorn there is still one image that says it all for us…picture crowds of people all oohing and ahhhing at the dramatic fireworks display. Dotted among the crowds you will see little children in snowsuits perched on the strong shoulders of dad, grandpa, big brother or uncle. Now that is a heartwarming sight to behold. Silver Bells in the City is FREE to the public and gets our vote for most family-friendly event all year! See you downtown.
