You are being given every excuse to head down to East Lansing this weekend.  You also might want to bring your wallet.

The East Lansing Arts Festival is in its 53rd year in down town East Lansing.   I try and go every year, and every year I am amazed by the creativity of people who can paint , or make a sculpture, or make a piece of wood or metal into an object that you just HAVE to have for your home.

Not to be forgotten is the Spring Arts and Crafts show on the MSU campus.  So many different craft items to look at.  If you go, plan on spending the day, because you will need that much time to fully enjoy and appreciate the wonderful work done by these talented people.

A tip from me ( an Art's Festival pro), wear comfortable shoes, you will thank me for that advice.
