It’s Not Too Late to Participate in Scrapfest!


Ten thousand pounds of scrap metal, 20 teams, two weeks and one intense competition. That defines the Old Town Lansing Scrapfest, which is just around the corner! The fifth annual event begins on June 1, 2013 when up to 20 teams will be given one hour to collect 500 pounds of scrap metal at Friedland Industries.

Teams then have two weeks to reuse, repurpose and redesign their materials into a unique sculpture that will be displayed during Old Town’s popular Festival of the Moon & Festival of the Sun. While on display, the pieces will be judged by accomplished artists and community members and later auctioned off during the festival.
Artists interested in participating in the event can now complete an application and return it before Friday, May 10.
