Weekend Roundup May 29-31

The end of the school year is approaching which means most of us with school aged kids have very busy schedules This weekend is no exception.

Ann Arbor with Kids Weekend Roundup May 29-31

The weekend literally starts with a bang on Friday night with the Milan Fair Fireworks at 10p. Head there early since the rides open at 4p. The fair continues on Saturday with a Family Fun Bike Ride and a Pancake Breakfast.

My family will be spending most of Saturday at Pioneer High School for Science Olympiad (along with 2nd-5th graders from 37 other area elementary schools). I am a head coach at  my daughter’s school, my daughter is competing in two events, and my husband is volunteering. My daughter really enjoyed that activities that they had last year and is looking forward to them again (which is good since she will be there for awhile while my husband and I are volunteering).

If you have younger kids, I recommend If You Give a Mouse a Cookie at Performance Network Theatre. There are performances at 11a and 2p on both Saturday and Sunday.

Then, on Sunday we are looking forward to Taste of Ann Arbor. It is one of our favorite annual events! We also have to work around my daughter’s soccer game (not the first time we’ve had to do this). Unfortunately, the weather forecast has gone downhill since Friday and heavy rain is forecast for most of the day.

There are plenty of indoor events on Sunday including the Free Family Day Grand Opening Celebration at GymAmerica, LEGO Connection at Malletts Creek Branch of AADL, and the Youth Fun Festival with Ann Arbor Civic Theatre.

For teens, there is also Live on Washington, an outdoor music festival on Saturday. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for the event.

Weather pending, this weekend is also a great time to hit the pools, water parks, and splash pads. It looks like this afternoon might be your best bet. There is currently an 80% chance of thunderstorms on Saturday. Sunday is predicted to have a high in the low 60s, so the pools will not open.

On Sunday, if you want to get wet (but not rained on), Splash Universe is holding a birthday celebration with discounted admission (only $8!).

The full weekend event list is below (and will be updated through the weekend if I learn of additional events):
