OPENING LANSING’S “HOW-TO HALLOWEEN” EVENT! The zombie apocalypse is infecting Lansing! With Halloween right around the corner, we invite you to Lansing’s How-To Halloween Event. This family-friendly festival celebrates the do-it-yourself spirit of the holiday in a fun and safe environment. Learn how it’s done with tips on how to make your own ghoulish props, costumes, baked-goods, and even your own zombie make-up. Cost for How-To Halloween is $6 at the door starting at 11am. Join us at 11:00 a.m., for an exclusive zombie make-up tutorial taught by experienced zombies. If you’re already an expert come zombie-fied and ready to invade at high noon in the Lansing Center Lobby. Walk downtown ending at the capital (free to walk), then return to the Lansing Center for the How-To Halloween Zombie Competition (entry fee required). Pre-Registration required for the make-up tutorial (entry to How-To Halloween included for all registered). All proceeds from the make-up tutorial and t-shirt sales go to the Lansing Parks and Recreation Youth Scholarship Fund. We will also be accepting food donations for the Greater Lansing Food Bank.
