Also going on this weekned is Lansing’s Be A Tourist in Your Own Town.

Be A Tourist In Your Own Town serves to acquaint area residents with hospitality-related businesses and attractions in order to create local “ambassadors” who will spread the word about Greater Lansing. The goal is to familiarize residents with the leisure options that are available in their own backyard so that when a visitor asks, “what’s there to do in town,” each and every resident can respond with countless suggestions and a sense of community pride. Local “tourists” are able to visit more than 35 area attractions throughout downtown Lansing and East Lansing using their passports purchased for $1.

The Greater Lansing Parade of Homes starts this weekend.  If you’re thinking of building a new home this is a great opportunity to interview builders and see their work.  If you’re not building it’s still a great time to research trends and get ideas for remodeling projects.  Plus it’s just fun to be nosy in cool new houses. 

Tickets are $10 for adults and part of the proceeds are donated to local charities.
