Good day and happy weekend.
In addition to this weekend's Michigan Pride activities, which can be viewed here, Saturday offers Pagan Pride day, for those who follow nature-based religions. Read about the event in this article by Eve Kucharski.
LGBTQ people and allies are proud this weekend, pagans are proud this weekend, and so are Pokémon trainers. The Capitol Society for Pokétrainers and Drink hosts its first bar crawl this weekend. Starting in Old Town, the group plans to travel 2.5 miles. Tickets include merchandise such as T-shirts, pint glasses and buttons. Saturday, 3-11 p.m. $20. Zoobie's Old Town Tavern, 611 E. Grand River Ave., Lansing. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/capitol-society-for-poketrainers-and-drink-inaugural-hunt-bar-crawl-tickets-26908467952?ref=estw
