A new era in sports for Michigan’s Capital region was announced yesterday on the field of Cooley Law School Stadium in downtown Lansing. Seven representatives from numerous partnering entities took turns addressing the crowd and media members to announce the only professional soccer team for the state of Michigan, Lansing Ignite.

The Greater Lansing Convention and Visitors Bureau (GLCVB) is excited to join the rest of the community in welcoming the latest Gillespie Group development to downtown Lansing. The massive 150 thousand square foot development will occupy a 4.15-acre portion of land on the 600 block of Michigan avenue, kitty corner from Cooley Law School Stadium.

Summer in Greater Lansing is an awesome time. Concerts and farmer's markets and a kayak ride down the grand river makes it a special place when the sun is out. However my favorite part about the Capital City in the summer is the Lansing Lugnuts. Our team is the Class A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays and will serve as hosts for the 2018 Midwest League All Star Game on June 19th at 7:05 p.m.

Be A Tourist In Your Own Town (This Saturday June 2nd from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) is a fantastic way to explore Michigan's Capital region. From attractions to galleries to wineries and breweries the whole community opens its doors and offers a chance for residents and visitors alike to explore Greater Lansing for just the cost of your $1 passport.
