Ypsi Heritage Festival Weekend Roundup – August 21-23

There are several great events this weekend and it is hard to decide which events to pick. We love the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival and definitely recommend it to families in the area. 

Ann Arbor with Kids Ypsilanti Heritage Festival Weekend Roundup for August 21-23

Ypsilanti Heritage Festival

Our family loves the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival and definitely recommend attending if you are in town this weekend. As much as we enjoy the Ypsi Heritage Festival, it seems to coincide with our August vacations fairly frequently so we only get to attend every couple of years. 

The Heritage Festival has had some financial struggles the last few years, so we were thrilled to hear that they are able to hold the Festival. Unfortunately the parade was one of the casualties of the financial issues.

Water Activities

The weather looks pretty good both days this weekend making it a good weekend to head to the local pools or water parks. I know we have been talking about squeezing in a couple more trips to Rolling Hills to make sure we get our money’s worth out of our vehicle pass. Veterans Pool will be holding Splash Day on Saturday while Fuller Pool has a Dive-In Movie both of which also offer fun options at the pools.
