The smell of a bonfire fills the air while playful screams echo in the distance. About 15 parents surround the fire pit watching their kids run up a giant hill, and sled down the same hill lit by the moon and some help from overhead lights. Despite the below-freezing temperatures, the biannual Moonlight Sledding event in Okemos was under way recently. Although, for Recreational Specialist Mike Devlin, the turnout wasn’t quite as large as it usually is. “This is a huge family event,” Devlin said.
Lansing is home to a great list of attractions and activities that seem to go under the radar for many of its residents. Things like parks, festivals and museums are just a few things that the Greater Lansing area has to offer its community but there are also other ways to make your own fun. Since Lansing is the fifth-largest city in Michigan it only makes sense that every person won’t know about every single thing going on. However, each group of people, depending on what they’re interested in, have their own community within Lansing. Some people in the younger crowd that are interested in the music industry here in Lansing tend to flock towards the places that offer live music.
You’re sitting in a park enjoying a lovely afternoon with some friends. The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and a group of people are running around behind you searching through trees and bushes. Your curiosity is piqued when you see them whip out GPS systems, but you never get the guts to ask them what they’re doing. Meanwhile, Jessica Rehling, a student behavior and conflict resolution administrator at Michigan State University, is leading a group of her friends on a trip through the forest to find a geocache, or as she would say, a hidden treasure. Geocaching is like a scavenger hunt made by anyone around you, said Rehling.
