Following showers and thunderstorms during the week, the National Weather Service is forecasting sunshine Saturday.

And local residents may want to take advantage of the nice weather by heading to Lansing’s annual Fall Festival.

The event is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Angel Falls Trail.

“We just do it as a community event,” said Jessica Waters, economic development and convention and visitors bureau assistant for the city.

Admission to the event is free, but some vendors may charge fees.

Angel Falls Trail can be accessed near St. Francis de Sales Church, 900 Ida St.

Waters said parking at the church will be limited.

But this year, the city will be providing a free shuttle service from Lansing Elementary School, 450 West Mary St., to the site of the festival.

The festival will include activities such as pumpkin decorating, a petting zoo, musician Sky Smeed, a caricature artist and a magician.

Waters said about 60 craft vendors are slated to be at the festival. There also will be seven food vendors.

She said the activities and vendors will be set up along Angel Falls Trail on both sides of the trail’s bridge.

Even if there is inclement weather Saturday, Waters said organizers plan to have the festival rain or shine.

The Lansing Community Library and Lansing Activity Center will be closed Saturday in support of the festival.
