Weekend Adventures in Ann Arbor with Kids

It’s October which means the fall/harvest events are in full swing and Halloween events are just starting. The Ann Arbor with Kids Halloween Guide will be out soon to help you plan all of your family’s Halloween fun. In the meantime, my Halloween pick for this weekend is the Costume Swap at the Downtown Branch of AADL (or a trip to HalloWeekends at Cedar Point).

Weekend Adventures in Ann Arbor with Kids - October 2-4
For our family, we are hoping to put out our outdoor Halloween decorations before my daughter’s soccer game on Saturday.

The weather forecast this weekend is a bit more fall like with cooler temperatures. 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 last Saturday. We’re planning to return for pumpkins later this month.

This weekend Home is Quality 16’s Free-Quent FMG Movie. The movie shows at 9 & 10a on Saturday and Sunday. Hotel Transylvania 2 is still in theaters. I know my daughter enjoyed the first movie and has asked about seeing the sequel.
