With sunny conditions in the forecast for this weekend, people may want to head out to the Lansing DAZE Festival.

The city of Lansing will be hosting the festival Friday night and Saturday in conjunction with the 15th annual Brew, Blues, & Bar-B-Q Cook-Off. Both events will take place at Kenneth W. Bernard Community Park, 15650 Gilman Road.

Activities will take place from 6-11 p.m. Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. General admission is free.

“It’s really just a community event,” said Tim Dossey, event and marketing coordinator for the city.

The festival will feature musical performances, food vendors, a car show and other activities.

Children’s inflatables, games and rides will be available for a fee. Tickets are $1 each. Wristbands are $15 each or two for $25. Dossey said wristbands are good for only one day.

A fireworks show is planned for around 9:30 p.m. Friday.

There will be a People’s Choice competition at 11 a.m. Saturday. Members of the public can pay $5 to sample food from the barbecue contest. It is anticipated that more than 30 teams will compete in the Brew, Blues, & Bar-B-Q Cook-Off.

Musical performances will include Scott Duncan, who performs classic rock, according to Dossey.

The Good Sam Club, which also performs classic rock, will be featured during the festival as well. A ZZ Top tribute band, Eliminator KC, also will be performing.
