Fall Weekend Adventures in Ann Arbor with Kids – October 9-11, 2015

After enjoying a weekend without a home Michigan football game, I have already noticed the traffic picking up for the Homecoming Game this weekend. I think we’ll be avoiding the downtown area at least on Saturday. Fortunately, our Girl Scout event and soccer game are on our side of town so we shouldn’t need to cross the game day traffic. 

There are tons of events this weekend, so be sure to check out our recommendations and find the full event list at the bottom.

Halloween Events This Weekend

This weekend Halloween events kick off in the Ann Arbor area. There are a couple of Halloween crafts around town this weekend (Haunted Birdhouse at Lowe’s and Kids Club Perler Frankenstein at Michaels).

This weekend also marks the start of Hallowe’en at Greenfield Village and Zoo Boo at the Detroit Zoo.

Fall Family Fun in Ann Arbor

The weather forecast this weekend looks great with temperatures ranging from a high of 61 on Friday to 74 (yes 74 in October) on Sunday. This makes it the perfect time to visit one of our local Apple Orchards, Cider Mills, or Corn Mazes. Be sure to check the schedule before you visit. We had a Fun Day at Wasem Fruit Farm two weeks ago. We’re planning to return for pumpkins later this month.
