The Lansing City Market is excited to announce the return of our summer concerts on the riverfront. The Grand Concert Series is comprised of Jazz on the Grand on select Wednesdays this summer, with Blues on the Grand following on Thursday. The City Market and LEPFA have been working with local organizations, including the MSU College of Music, T. Rose Inc, and MICA, to give back to the community and provide more entertainment options for Greater Lansing residents. The event’s free admission is due to generous sponsorship by LAFCU, WKAR, Dominos Pizza, Emergent Biosolutions, Wolverine Development and Gordon Food Service. 

Bring a camping chair, but leave the food at home, because you can grab a drink and a burger at the Waterfront Bar & Grill, a sweet treat from Nom Nom Cupcakes, or bbq from Red's Smokehouse. Other select merchants will be open throughout the event.

Ever wanted to try out a new workout class? Zumba, Yoga, Pilates, Pound, P90X – There’s just so many to choose from! The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that adults get at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderately intense aerobic activity each week. This can be brisk walking, water aerobics, riding a bike on level ground with few hills, pushing a lawn mower, etc. It is also recommended that adults participate in sets of 8-12 repetitions of muscle-strengthening activities at least 2 days per week. This includes lifting weights, working with resistance bands, body weight exercises (push-ups, sit-ups, etc.), heavy gardening, yoga, etc.

Does 2 hours and 30 minutes seem like a lot? Well it’s not – that’s about the same amount of time you might spend watching a movie or watching TV on any given day. Spreading out your time throughout the week makes this 2 hours and 30 minutes seem like a lot less. Keep in mind, 10 minutes at a time is fine! 

Don’t think you can find the time? Join Spartan Dance Center at Lansing City Market every other Saturday morning for a fun and energizing workout class! The classes with begin promptly at 10:30am and will go until 11:15am – Look at that! You’re almost a third of the way to your weekly goal!
