It's Plaidurday! Be part of something fun and slightly ridiculous.
Join us in Downtown Lansing on October 6th for an epic photo. This is the 6th rendition of an epic Lansing Plaidurday photo!

We will gather along the Lansing River Trail by the Gazebo next to the Lansing Center.
Many ways to celebrate!
