The 2017 Great Lakes Folk Festival gets underway at 6 pm Friday.  Stage crews are checking their wires and vendors their wares before it all begins.  WKAR’s Kevin Lavery strolled around downtown East Lansing to check it out.

There’s a change happening along Grand River in East Lansing. Buildings are being prepped for renovation, which means some businesses are relocating. WKAR’s Jamie Paisley learned about one business that decided to add-on a little something.
