10+ THINGS TO DO OVER LABOR DAY WEEKEND! | Greater Lansing Area Moms

If you are staying around town this weekend, GLAMoms has compiled a list of area things to do! We hope you have a safe and fun holiday weekend! 

Take a day trip to Downtown Owosso! You’ll find shopping, farmers markets, ice cream shops, restaurants and even tour a castle!

Cool off at one of the area pools, splash pads or beaches! This is the last weekend the East Lansing Aquatic Center will be open.

Last home stretch for the Lansing Lugnuts.  There are themed nights for the weekend, fireworks and get a photo with Big Lug!  Oh, there is a baseball game too! On Sunday, plan for an Extra Inning at Capital City Market. They may have a treat waiting for you.

It’s a beautiful day for football! Michigan State has their home opener against Central Michigan on Friday at 7pm. If you aren’t attending in person, set up a backyard tailgate and incorporate these game time crafts or make this festive dip!

Take the night off from cooking and visit a local restaurant. On Sundays, kids eat free or at a discounted rate at many area restaurants!


Visit the brand new playground structure in DeWitt.  GLAMoms stopped for a peek and it is AWESOME.  Here is a little preview we shared on Instagram. And while you are there are two more playgrounds within walking distance along the river trail.  Then checkout downtown DeWitt and an afternoon of it!  

It’s going to be HOT this weekend, want to get the kids energy out indoors? How about bowling, roller skating or a trampoline park!


Summer produce is abundant this time of year! Check out an area Farmers Market and try a new recipe. We love this one from Whole 30, Grilled Romaine Salad!


 Meet up with a friend to explore one of the many nature, walking or biking trails in Greater Lansing and then treat yourself to a coffee at one of the many local coffee spots!


Check out an area festival for music, food and dancing!
There are a few happening over the Holiday weekend!


Another way to cool off this weekend, a sweet treat! Try an area ice cream spot or two you have never been to before.


Labor Day sales will be in full force.  Eastwood Towne Center is full of stores for everyone in the family and the perfect place for a stroll!   Maybe even preview some Halloween costumes while you are there.  OH… and don’t forget to sign up for the Back to School Giveaway or your chance to win one of TWO Eastwood Towne Center gift cards valued at $250.  More information HERE.

August is Black Business Month and GLAMoms has compiled a list of amazing Black-owned businesses located throughout the Greater Lansing area – take a look!


Find a quiet corner or a hammock and catch up on a book you have been wanting to read! Greater Lansing has some amazing local libraries or maybe you want to escape to the quiet of a local bookstore, be sure to check ahead for holiday hours.
