LCC to host Silver Bells watch party
By Sejin Lee
The Silver Bells Parade is known as one of the most beloved events in Lansing.
This year, attendees will be able to enjoy the parade in a warm, comfortable environment at the first annual Silver Bells Parade Watch Party at LCC.
The event will be held on Friday, Nov. 16 in the Gannon Commons from 5 p.m. until the end of the parade.
At this event, attendees will watch the Silver Bells Parade on two huge screens.
LCC has hosted holiday parties in the past, but officials decided to include a live broadcast this year because they wanted to make a place for the community to gather.
“People have flocked to the Lansing City Market for a community event during Silver Bells,” said LCC Conference Service Manager Kelly Hekler. “Once I learned of (the market’s) potential closing, I made plans to host an event.”
Watching the parade is the main event, but that is not all.
Before the parade begins, two holiday movies, “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure” and “Frozen Fever,” will be shown.
Also, attendees will be able to enjoy diverse holiday activities with their families: taking family photos, making holiday crafts, decorating sugar cookies, petting therapy dogs and feeding a real reindeer outside.
Free food and beverages, including snacks and hot cocoa, will be provided, too.
After the party, participants are highly encouraged to go over to Dart Auditorium for LCC Radio’s annual Silver Bells radio play. This year’s production will be “The Imminent Return of Anti-Claus.”
The event is open to all LCC students and employees, as well as the public. For more information, visit www.lcc.edu/silverbells and www.lccradio.org.
