Lots of Summer Fun for Thursday, August 6

After a light activity day yesterday, there are several great events on the calendar today. The two big events on the calendar are Michigan Football Youth Day and the Ann Arbor District Library LEGO Contest.

Ann Arbor Summer Fun for August 6

We’ve had the AADL LEGO Contest marked on our calendar since the beginning of the summer. My daughter has participated since 2011 except for one year that we were on vacation. Her entry for this year is ready for me to drop-off. Drop off is from 9a-3p so your child still has some time to finish their creation this morning. This is the first year that I will be doing the drop-off alone since my daughter is in camp this week. She is looking forward to the open viewing hours (6-8p) after camp to see everyone’s creation.


Michigan Football’s Youth Day is scheduled for today. The gates will open at 12:30p with the team introduced at 1:15p. I’m disappointed that the event was moved to a weekday (on one of the two weeks my daughter is at camp this summer).

The LEGO Contest isn’t the library’s only event today. They have their regular story times (10a at Traverwood and 7p at Pittsfield) and playgroups (6:30p at Malletts Creek) and a Nature Walk at Furstenberg Nature Area.

It’s going to be in the upper 70s tomorrow. After spending time outside at Michigan Football Youth Day, a trip to one of our favorite places to get wet might be a good idea to cool down before heading to one of our 10 places to get wet (although be warned that Veterans Pool has had some closures lately).
