The Greater Lansing area is hosting a multitude of events over the next few weeks.

As the New Year rings in, so do some upcoming holidays and landmarks, including Friday the 13th on Jan. 13, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 16.

Local organizers are delivering on corresponding events for these days.

Friday the 13th: REO Town Nights will be held in REO Town on, unsurprisingly, Friday, Jan. 13. This event offers some late-night shopping at everyone’s favorite REO Town spooky stores, from Voodoo’s World of Oddiquities, The Screamatorium, and Dead Time Stories.

“This event will have ‘after hours’ shopping under dimmed and FX lighting,” said John Harris, the owner of Voodoo’s World of Oddiquities. “We will also have special guests and haunted attraction guests lurking around the district, such as; Baron Johny Ross and Sindee Nyte, SeWEr and maybe even Jason Voorhees himself. Participating shops will have sales, treats and music for our late night shoppers.”

For those who may not know, Jason Voorhees was the main antagonist in the film franchise, “Friday the 13th.”

MLK Day Skate! is an event hosted by the Edru staking rink at 1891 Cedar St. in Holt from 1 to 5 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 16. For a $10 admission fee, guests are able to participate at the skating rink all afternoon.

This event is meant to both commemorate and celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., with fun for the whole family. For more information, visit the website here.

MLK Day of Celebration is a well-known mid-Michigan event hosted by the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commission of Mid-Michigan. The event will be held at the Lansing Center at 333 E. Michigan Ave at 11 a.m. on Jan. 16.

This is the 38th annual MLK Day of Celebration luncheon. There will be a special guest speaker, Fred Gray, who was known for representing the people affected by the Tuskegee Syphilis Study.

This event helps to raise money for education, anti-hunger initiatives and community service organizations. Tickets are $65 per person or $425 per table (which seats 8).
