What's Up in Lansing: Color Cruise and Island Festival


Take a cruise down the river and enjoy the towering trees surrounding it that represent Michigan in the Fall with the Color Cruise and Island Festival. Visitors will enjoy the historic 60-foot sandstone ledges, and can even make an attempt to conquer the ledge alongside rock climbers from across the country. From excavating treasures in the Diamond Dig, painting a pumpkin with a spooky face or cranking an old cider press, this event will have something for everyone in the family. Entertainment will be provided throughout the weekend featuring folk musicians and clog-dancers. If you get hungry, don’t worry, you can fill up on chili, hot dogs, steak and cheese sandwiches, brats, elephant ears and much more.
