Cheryl Maloney and her family love watching the Silver Bells in the City parade every year downtown Lansing and according to Maloney, she and her three girls anxiously await the fireworks to go off behind the Capitol building. “The fireworks are a good addition to all of the festivities,” Maloney said. “My family always loves going to watch.” According to Brian Jackson, chief deputy city clerk at the Lansing City Clerk Office, it takes a lot to get approval of this display. The event coordinators need forms, proof of funds and approval from the fire marshal and state police department.
