THIS SATURDAY (October 11): How-To Halloween at The Lansing Center

“How-To Halloween” is a family-oriented event dedicated to fostering the do-it-yourself spirit of the haunting season. Its tagline, “What will you create in your laboratory?” exemplifies its goal: to inspire kids and their parents to head to the garage or basement and build something cool for the holiday. Along the way, everybody might learn something about the creative process, engineering, and science!

This is not just for kids and tinkerers! Halloween fans of all ages will love this event.

The event will appropriately take place during Lansing Maker Week and be held at the Lansing Center on October 11th from noon until 8pm. It promises to be fun, educational, and inspirational with its over 2 dozen exhibits, displays, contests, and hands-on activities. Several vendors will on hand too, selling their handmade Halloween crafts. Live and undead music will playing throughout the day, too.
