With the holidays right around the corner, families and friends of Lansing are looking for some fun events to help celebrate. The Greater Lansing Area offers a multitude of holiday festivities, including light shows, movies and an ugly sweater challenge.

Lansing Holiday Light Show will take place on various dates through Dec. 31. The show is located at 5339 S. Aurelius Road, inside of Cottonwood Campground. The light show begins at 5 p.m. with no designated closing time.

The light show is a half mile long and includes loads of beautiful flashing Christmas lights that are synced up to a Christmas radio station in the car. Guests can enjoy the warmth of their vehicle while driving slowly and watching the holiday light show.

Tickets can be sold per carload or as a season pass. For a single use, a ticket is $25 and for a season pass, it is $62. For more information, or to buy tickets, visit the website here.

Carie Cogswell, a student at LCC and a mother, said she plans on enjoying Lansing’s Cottonwood Campground’s Holiday Light Show with her family.

“I hope to make it a tradition,” Cogswell said. “We first went in November, but we plan on going back closer to Christmas. It really puts you in that holiday mood with the music and the lights. My daughter loved it.”

NCG Lansing Cinema this year will be offering a free showing “Polar Express” on Saturday, Dec. 24 at 11 a.m.

NCG also has a more adult-friendly holiday movie on its regular lineup, “Violent Night,” which has later showings throughout the day. Tickets, popcorn, and a drink are usually no more than $20 per person.

Zenna Seehase, a student at LCC, said one of her favorite things to do to celebrate the season is watching holiday movies.

“Ever since I was little, my family and I would visit NCG on Christmas Eve and go to see whatever holiday movie they’re showing,” Seehase said. “Except for the COVID year, NCG almost always shows a Christmas movie for free on Christmas Eve.”

For more information, or to book tickets, visit NCG’s website here.

An Ugly Sweater Party will be hosted by Lansing Brewery Company today (Thursday, Dec. 22) from 5 to 11 p.m. According to LBC’s website, there will be music, drink and beer specials, as well as bright holiday spirit.

The winner of the ugly sweater challenge will be voted on by LBC staff and the winner will receive a $100 gift card. For more information on how to participate, visit LBC’s website here.
