When the weather perks up, one of the benefits of being in a capital city like Lansing are the many free and low-cost events taking place.
Starting June 5th and taking place on selected days throughout the summer, come to Lansing for Free Concerts in the Park. This the 20th year these musical events have taken place and they are a bastion of summer in Michigan!
