Another weekend is almost here and, once again, there is so much to do locally!

The Ghost of FrankenFest is a paranormal investigation of the well-known Turner-Dodge House, located at 100 E. North St. in Lansing, which will be occurring this Saturday, June 24.

There will be three tours of the 1858 mansion, starting at 7:30, 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. Before people are allowed to walk through these allegedly haunted halls, spooky stories will be presented by the Haunted Mitten Podcast.

There will also be a Master Illusionist, a live parody show and a few other presenters, all with something unique and new to offer. There will be a one-time admission fee of $5. 

It’s important to remember that times vary and a check of the schedule will be imperative for anyone interested in more than just the tour.

As a city of Lansing employee and a house activity leader, Ali Moore spends a great deal of time at the Turner-Dodge House and looks forward to the coming transformation.

“There is going to be a bunch of different vendors, and booths out on the lawn,” Moore said. “It’s basically Halloween in June.”

Souvenirs, alcoholic beverages and original art will also be available for purchase. It should be noted that all proceeds go to charities for children.

The Olive Burger Festival is happening this Saturday, June 24 from noon to 7 p.m. at 505 E. Michigan Ave. in Lansing.

Lansing is home to this “iconic burger” and will have a variety of local restaurant and food vendors there, all serving their best olive sauce.

The general admission price is $20, which includes 10 food tickets; quartered burgers will be sold for two tickets each. Additional food will be sold by the dollar.

There will be live music, games and alcoholic beverages for adults over the age of 21. The event will also include face painting and a bouncy house for the little ones.

The East Lansing Farmers Market will be hosted at Valley Court Park Sunday, June 25. It is located at 280 Valley Court and runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., supplying all the fresh produce one can carry.

This growers-only market is right off the MSU campus and promises a “diverse selection.” Vendors will be selling a litany of things including, but not limited to, fruits, vegetables, bread, cheese, meat, coffee, flowers and honey.

Every pantry could use a trip to a good farmers market, making supporting the community affordable and easy. For more event details, click here
