Silver Bells Friday night in Lansing
Every year there is a parade, an 80's rock band, and a meet and greet with Santa.
But the highlight of the night is lighting of the state capitol's tree.
All of this excitement had downtown Lansing packed.
Parking was tough because the city closed roughly five streets between Ottowa and Hillsdale.
Most streets closed around 4:30 Friday afternoon with some exceptions closing earlier in order for the city to set up the stage.
However, parking was free including parking meters and parking garages.
Silver Bells began Friday at 6 p.m.
