     The 2nd Annual Lansing Harmony Celebration Set for September 14th

Rejuvenating South Lansing will be hosting the 2nd Annual Lansing Harmony Celebration on September 14th, at Benjamin Davis Park in South Lansing. The Lansing Harmony Celebration has been designed as a multicultural festival meant to celebrate the region’s diversity through music, arts, and food. The event will run 12-8 p.m., is free to the public, and will be held rain or shine.

     The festival’s main stage will serve as host to a diverse group of music and entertainment acts including Star Farm, Global Village, Tejano Sound Band, the Glen Erin Pipe Band, the Habibi Dancers, and a Burundian choir.   

     The festival will also include a Kids’ Zone, complete with performances from, among others, Steven’s Puppets and The Music Lady, various activities facilitated by Potter Park Zoo, Lansing School District art educators, Home Depot, and the South Lansing Capital Area District Library,, and other interactive displays and activities for kids to engage in. 

     Some of the area’s best food trucks and ethnic restaurants have signed on to participate and the festival will feature a very talented group of artists that specialize in a variety of art forms.

     “We couldn’t have imagined the impact last year’s event would have on the community and believe that this year’s festival will be even better,” Elaine Womboldt, Member of Rejuvenating South Lansing, said. “We are so excited to have the opportunity to once again celebrate the myriad cultures in the region and to create a stronger connection between people and the spaces they share in our community.”
