Do you enjoy a wonderful day of Jazz?

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Looking Glass

Need something to do this weekend; well Jazz fest is here again, in Old Town Lansing, for the 14th year. According to ILoveoldtown.org they are expecting roughly 15,000 people.

I have to say I am not a huge Jazz fan but last year was a wonderful time. Not only did I have a great time, it is free! This is a great event that brings so many people to Michigan's capital which in turn helps the local economy. How does that saying go.... Support your town or lose it... I think?  Old town is Full of Great Art galleries, restaurant's Shops. So if you have some free time Friday or Saturday Stop by and enjoy the Music!! Visit ILoveoldtown.org for more information. Here's to seeing you there!

Aaron  Old Town sure has made huge strides in the last decade or so.  I'm not a huge Jazz fan but I'm sure the festival was still fun

Great idea to post community events in your blog.  It doesn't bring clients directly, but it does help present you as knowledgeable about your community. 

By the way, you'll find that Mike's advice in the first comment is somewhat contrary to that of the ActiveRain gurus - in fact, their criteria for approving Localism posts mentions they want less, rather than more, when it comes to advertising on your posts.

Your call, of course.
