The three day Great Lakes Folk Festival brings food, dance and music - 15 groups performing 50 shows.

The festival is free and open to the public, with organizers just hoping to break even (the event costs around three-quarters of a million to put on). But, it also generates income for local businesses... estimated to be around 1.5 million dollars.

Harper's Restaurant says it has to hire on additional help to serve the extra patrons.

There are, however, road closures to accommodate the half-mile plaza in downtown East Lansing.
