Hey baseball fans, the Lansing Lugnuts will celebrate opening day with a block party from 3 to 6 p.m. Come meet the team and help yourself to snacks, games, raffles and live music before the Lugnuts take on the Great Lakes Loons beginning at 6 p.m.

Here's the best part, the first 100 people who arrive receive a free Lugnuts trapper hat.  Nothing beats a great baseball game at Cooley Law School Stadium.  Bring your family and friends for a fun time.  Admission is free for the Lugnuts block party.

Here's another weekend idea for Art fans.  Bring in your favorite photo of a pet or someone you love or anything you want and let a Reach Studio Art Center instructor show you exactly how to recreate it step by step using paint on a canvas.

Many fun things to do in the Lansing area over the weekend.  Click here on the Lansing State Journal to get more information.
