Somewhere in our state is a magnificent pine that will stand in full holiday glory later this year in front of the Michigan Capitol building in Lansing. We talk with Steve Doty of the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget, the agency leading the search for Michigan’s official Christmas tree.

If you like riding your bike and you like parties, there’s a local group that might be right up your alley. The Lansing Bike Party meets a few times a week to casually ride through town, explore neighborhoods, and meet people along the way. We hear from some regulars in the group, and let you know how you can join the party.
