EAST LANSING, Mich. — East Lansing kicked off their 2021 Art Festival on Saturday. Over 180 Arts, crafts and food vendors set up tents along Mac and Albert avenues in the city's downtown.

The event had live music and free activities for children and families. This is the 58th year since the festival began. It was canceled last year due to the pandemic.
