Lansing launches the Holiday Season with 'Silver Bells in the City'

Despite the snow and cold, it was a warm, wonderful display of holiday cheer -- Lansing’s annual “Silver Bells in the City” celebration.

Thousands of folks poured into downtown Lansing last night for the city’s official kickoff of the Christmas/Holiday season.

For the 38th year, "Silver Bells in the City" featured dozens of floats, marching bands, carriages, an electric light parade, and the lighting of the state Christmas tree at the Capitol. This year, that tree is from St. Johns in nearby Clinton County, a 60-foot Blue Spruce.

The city of Lansing decked the halls from head to toe, with 50,000 lights on the rooftops of over 130 buildings, around 200 giant red bows, 3,300 feet of garland, and over 8,000 LED lights on trees.

There were giant ornaments placed in key spots downtown and the traditional fireworks finale!

All in all, it looked like another successful community celebration!
