Lansing Fall Festival scheduled for Saturday
After going missing due to the COVID-19 pandemic last year, the Lansing Fall Festival returns on Saturday.
The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. along the Angel Falls Trail in Lansing. The trail is east of the Church of St. Francis de Sales, 900 Ida St.
The event includes about 30 stalls, musicians, inflatables, face painting and other activities for children. Food trucks will also be stationed at the event.
“We are very happy that the festival is taking place again,” said Ken Miller, Public Information Officer for Lansing City. “We need the festival now more than ever.”
Traditionally, one of the highlights of the festival has been the performing artists. This year musicians Shayla Shyann, Ry Kincaid and Wujeong Duncan will perform at different locations along the way.
“We found that the musical performances made the event stand out,” said Miller. “The musicians always seem to attract crowds. You are always very sympathetic to the masses. “
The festival returns after the 2020 absence due to the pandemic.
There is no obligation to wear a mask at the event on the festival site.
“This is an outdoor event, but we recognize that we are still in the middle of a pandemic,” Miller said. “If people want to wear a mask, wear a mask.”
Miller said the vendors’ booths will be more dispersed this year as a precautionary measure.
Parking is free and available in the church parking lot, but Miller encourages visitors to park at Lansing Elementary School. There will be a shuttle service that will take people to the festival and back to the school parking lot.
