Participants in the Sixth Annual Brew, Blues, & Bar-B-Q in Lansing will be smoking up meats in a new location when the festival takes place later this spring.

The festival will be Friday, April 30, and runs through Saturday, May 1, at a new location: Eisenhower Crossing near the intersection of DeSoto Road and Eisenhower Road in Lansing. Parking is available at Eisenhower Crossing and the Eisenhower Medical Plaza.
