With the school semester wrapping up and the temperature dropping, it’s that time of year to get ready for the holidays.

Lansing is hosting a collection of different holiday-themed events this week for friends, families, and couples to enjoy.

Holiday Night of Lights: Frances Park, located at 2701 Moores River Drive in Lansing, is hosting its annual Holiday Nights of Lights drive-thru. Families, friends and couples are able to enter at the north gate of the park from 6 to 9 p.m. and exit out of the west gate.

The park is completely covered with holiday displays, lighted trees and foliage, and even a decorated tunnel, making for a fun drive.

This event is totally free and is open for the first three weekends of December, recurring every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Holiday Drag Extravaganza: On Saturday, Dec. 17, The People’s Kitchen, located at 2722 E. Michigan Ave. in Lansing, will host a live drag performance that is holiday-themed. For $45, guests can enjoy a complete meal with live entertainment and drinks.

For more information or to buy tickets for the Holiday Drag Extravaganza, call (517) 507-5730 or email

Julie Eiler, a student at LCC, said a holiday drag show would be “right up her alley.”

“I think that sounds like a really reasonable price for a show, dinner and maybe some drinks,” Eiler said. “And drag shows are always so much fun!”

Milk & Cookies with Santa: Sweet Encounter Bakery & Cafe, a family-owned bakery located inside of the Knapp’s Building at 300 Washington Square, is hosting a family-oriented Milk & Cookies with Santa event at Meijer’s Capital City Market from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 18. Capital City Market is located at 600 E Michigan Ave.

The owner of Sweet Encounter Bakery & Cafe, Nikki, said this is not the first time the bakery has partnered with Capital City Market, and she hopes to continue to have events there in the future.

“Bring the entire family and let’s make magic as you learn to decorate Christmas cookies while enjoying a yummy hot chocolate station and, of course, a visit from Santa himself,” Nikki said. “Families get to decorate six different cookies using royal icing.”

Pre-registration for this event is required and spaces are filling up quickly, so make sure to secure a spot while they are open. To register for this class or for any other classes offered by Sweet Encounter Bakery & Cafe, visit the website here.
