Be sure to mark this day on your calendar.

Lansing's annual kick off to the holiday has been announced; Silver Bells In The City! Traditionally Silver Bells takes place the Friday before Thanksgiving, and this year is no different. Silver Bells will take over Downtown Lansing on Friday, November 16th. 

This year marks the 34th year that Lansing has celebrated the official unofficial kick off to the holiday season with a light parade, the lighting of the state Christmas Tree, a fireworks show, and -- of course-- SANTA!

At this time, Silver Bells is taking vendor applications for The Village. If you'd like to apply, or if you'd just like more information on the event, click here.
