Downtown Lansing will be all aglow once again for the 35th Anniversary edition (80s retro-throwback) of Silver Bells in the City. The event brings together family and friends from all over Michigan to celebrate the start of the holiday season. Silver Bells will feature numerous activities and special outdoor performances, all highlighted by the 23rd Annual Electric Light Parade complete with an assortment of 81 illuminated floats, carriages and marching bands, which will step off at 6 p.m. from the corner of S. Washington Square and Lenawee Street.
Immediately following the parade, crowds will gather ‘round the state Christmas tree and participate in the highly anticipated countdown to the lighting of the state tree and Community Sing. Michigan native and Woodward Avenue Records recording artist, Ben Sharkey, will lead the crowd in holiday favorites.
After the highly anticipated countdown to the lighting of the state Christmas tree, the skies will be aglow as a spectacular firework display cascades over the Capitol dome (weather permitting). Then legendary pop star and 80s icon, Tiffany, will perform live in concert at the Lansing Center along with the Mega 80’s.
