35th annual Silver Bells in the City


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)– From fireworks, to a visit from the man in red, the 35th annual Silver Bells in the City was full of holiday festivities.

But there are multiple things that bring people in from all over the state.

“I’m excited to see the bands, I’m actually in a band at my school and I really enjoy it,” said Brenden Litwiller.

People even came all the way from South Bend, Indiana to celebrate their birthday.

“I turned 49 today and we came here so we could see fireworks on my birthday for the first time,” said Tom Hammond.

For many families, it’s a tradition to go and celebrate being together for the holidays.
