Here's what's going on in town today

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Whether you're looking to party hardy or enjoy a more low-key holiday, City Pulse's 2017 St. Patrick's Day event guide has options for all. Check out our collection of parties, festivals and live music events here.

Halloween may be the prime time to bust out your crazy costumes, but March is dress-up time for Lansing-area anime and gaming fans. The seventh annual Shuto Con, Lansing’s annual anime and cosplay (costume play) convention, comes to the Lansing Center this weekend. The event features over 24 hours worth of panel discussions, video game tournaments, live music and a hall full of artists, vendors and Japanese merchandise dealers. Throughout the weekend, organizers are collecting donations for Ele’s Place. 9 a.m. Friday-6 p.m. Sunday. $15-$55. Lansing Center, 333 E. Michigan Ave., Lansing.
