Usually by the time things make it to the scrap yard, people don’t want them anymore.  But that’s not the case for the 16 teams of artists participating in Old Town’s Scrapfest this weekend in Lansing.

For the eighth year in a row, artists, welders and craftspeople from around Michigan have taken scrap materials and turned them into art- and they will unveil their recycled and upcycled creations this weekend in Old Town Lansing.

The event will also feature live music, family activities, a beer tent, an auction and more.

We talk with Old Town Commercial Association executive director Heather Mossing and Scrapfest committee member Barb Hranilovich.
