When you think of your home town of Lansing, what is one of the first things that come to mind? Is it the State Capitol Building with its imposing exterior facade and its interior beauty?

In the original poem of Wynken, Blynken and Nod, one of the lines reads, "Where are you going and what do you wish?" I think a lot of us are just wishing to get out and resume a bit of normality. And maybe now is the perfect time. 

There's so much that's been missing from our lives for the last year or so. For sure it's hugging and visiting with friends and family.

It's time to get out of the house. Are you ready? Let's take a look at what the Lansing area has to offer in the world of live outdoor entertainment. Get these on your calendar and buy your tickets now!
