The Final Five round of the 2017 City Pulse/Fox 47 Top of the Town contest is off and running! Over 11,000 participants voted in the first round, nominating nearly 7,000 of Greater Lansing’s best people, places and businesses. From those thousands of nominations, we pulled out the top five vote-getters in every category to battle it out for Top of the Town supremacy.

What you need to know:

The Details: The Final Five run-off contest runs until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, May 23. In this round, you can’t nominate anyone new; you must select from the dropdown menu.

We want to know what you think! (Will we regret this? Maybe!): We are encouraging comments on why you are voting for a particular business, person or place and will publish a select few when we announce the winners on June 7.

No carryover points: First Round votes no longer carry into the Final Five Round; all nominees start from scratch. So if you’re vying for that top spot, make sure your fans come back and vote again!
