Weekend Roundup: Summer Vacation is Almost Here!

There is just one week of school left before summer is here in full force. If you’ve been following the blog, you know I have been busy adding summer activities like crazy.

The weather is also looking great for Saturday (Sunday is a bit up in the air), so it is a great day to head to one of the local parks, pools, or water parks. If my daughter didn’t have her last soccer game, Community Health & Safety Day at Independence Lake would be at the top of our list. After the free event, you can stay and play all day at Blue Heron Bay which my daughter really enjoyed last year.

This weekend is Free Fishing Weekend in the State of Michigan. During Free Fishing Weekend, you do not need a fishing license to fish. Several local parks are running programs aimed at families that provide fishing gear and training (some cost a small fee).

Tonight is the first night for outdoor movies in the area. Saline kicks off their Movie in the Park series with Frozen tonight at Mill Pond Park. Tomorrow night, Ypsilanti Township enters into the outdoor movie arena with their Movie in the Park showing of Disney’s Planes at Ford Heritage Park.

The Ann Arbor Hands On Museum has their Bubble Fest this weekend. The first time we took our daughter to the museum was for the Bubble Festival (in 2007, at 17 months). They also have a preschool story time at 10:30a on Saturday and have opened their new expansion of the Preschool Gallery.


For the cars obsessed, Quality 16 has a special event: Team Hot Wheels: The Origin of Awesome Event offered through Fathom Events. This is a special Hot Wheels themed movie that is only showing in select theaters nationwide.

Additionally, as you drive around town this weekend, you will want to be aware of the lane closures on I-94. Beginning at 8p tonight (Friday, June 6) the left lane of westbound I-94 will be closed between US-23 and M-14 for pavement until 1p on Saturday, June 7. Then, on Saturday, June 7 the right lane will be closed on the same stretch until noon on Sunday, June 8.

What events are your family looking forward to this weekend? We are wrapping up soccer and have  aGirl Scout event on Sunday.

Ann Arbor with Kids is your go-to source for Ann Arbor Family Fun. It got its start in an activity list that I was compiling for the playgroup I ran at our church. When my daughter started preschool, the other moms were thrilled to hear about my list. I decided to take the list public in 2009.
