The city of East Lansing will host the second annual Moonlight ExtravaGRANDza downtown on Monday from 8 to 11 p.m.
The late-night event will showcase local East Lansing businesses to new and returning Michigan State University students as part of the university’s Welcome Week.
A host of downtown businesses will line the sidewalks, offering giveaways and deals for students, as well as live entertainment throughout.
“The event provides a great opportunity for students to get to know their downtown, while also providing businesses and our community an opportunity to welcome students to East Lansing and showcase all that downtown East Lansing has to offer,” East Lansing community and economic development specialist Matthew Apostle said in a release.
Students will have the opportunity to get to know businesses through the “ExtravaGavenger Hunt”. Those who complete the hunt will receive a T-shirt and enter a raffle to win a pair of AirPods Pro or a 43-inch Smart TV.
Zeke Wonderdog will be in attendance at Sharp Park and free succulents will be handed out at the East Lansing Marriot Square. Some live nightly events include a caricaturist, body paint artist and wheel spinner.
Live music entertainment is headlined by Pretty Jane & the Magazines, with a free show from 8 to 11pm at the Ann Street Plaza located on the corner of Albert and MAC Streets.
The East Lansing City Clerk’s Office will also provide students with voting information for upcoming elections.
“When Spartans join us on campus, they are choosing to make MSU and East Lansing their home,” MSU Senior Vice President for Student Life and Engagement Vennie Gore said in a press release. “We are thrilled to partner with the city to make their reception a warm, inviting and diverse experience.”
