Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks August 5-7, 2016

This summer has flown by. Maybe it’s because we were so busy in June and July with my daughter’s sports. Now that August is here, I’ll be adding some back to school information as it becomes available. But don’t worry, we still have a month of summer in Ann Arbor.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - August 5-7

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

Activities usually go through a lull in August as people go on vacation, but there are still some great events this weekend!

The Rio Olympics have kicked off and there are several local events over the next week starting with a Summer Olympics Celebration! at AADL’s Downtown Branch on Friday at 2p.

Want a kid free dinner on Friday? Flipside Art Studio has a Parents Night Out where the kids will learn to paint in the style of Monet.

On Sunday, your fairy lovers will drag you back to the Farmers Market for Fairy Day at the Sunday Artisan Market.

Parents of American Girl lovers will probably be dragged to Twelve Oaks Mall for the opening of their temporary American Girl Store this weekend.

The weekend weather forecast is promising a break in temperatures with highs in the low 80s and nighttime temps around 60. I’ll take it! This has definitely been the hottest Michigan summer in my 13 years here. While the temperatures are a bit cooler, they are perfect for a trip to the water park. It’s almost too hot to go at 90 especially if it’s crowded and you’re waiting in line. Don’t miss our water park picks in the 10 Places to Get Wet this Summer.
