A Grand Experience will liven things up on the Lansing River Trail through the summer, adding food trucks, music and art to the outdoor ambiance of a walk on the trail.

The Grand Experience kicked off on the Lansing River Trail on June 7 outside the Lansing City Market. The event was started by the Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP), the Community Foundation, the Greater Lansing Regional Prosperity Initiative, the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission, the Rotary Foundation, Michigan Realtors Association, and the Lansing Entertainment and Public Facilities Authority.

The Grand Experience will run through Aug.14, with food vendors, local musicians and the new ArtPath along the river trail. Food and activities will be offered during lunch and dinner Monday through Fridays. Each day will feature different vendors. So far, vendors have included food offerings from Purple Carrot, Blue Owl Coffee and the Smoke N’ Pig BBQ, to name a few.

The community is invited to enjoy a meal while listening to local musicians like Pat Zelenka, Brandon McCoy, Adam Droscha and more. Visitors can experience a yoga class, go kayaking or check out the new ArtPath for a limited time when visiting the trail.

“Through LEAP’s regional placemaking work, we recognize that people gathering in public spaces builds a stronger sense of pride within the community,” said Bob Trezise, president and CEO of LEAP. “Other communities are activating urban spaces in this way, and our riverfront is a key asset and great place for us to invest as well. The Grand Experience is a way to connect downtown employees and residents with what Lansing has to offer.”
