Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks September 30-October 1

The last few days seem to be making up for our lack of rain all summer. With a rainy Wednesday, Thursday, and more rain predicted for Friday and Saturday, the weekend definitely calls for some indoor activities. Sunday’s weather forecast has improved from earlier this week, but I still expect a lingering of soggy conditions.

Of course the joke’s on me, since Saturday is now expected to be mostly clear. (When I first wrote this for the weekend roundup email on Thursday night, the forecast was 70% rain, now it’s 20%).

Arbor Annie's Rainy Weekend Picks - September 30-October 1

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Roundup 

Originally we were thinking of picking apples this weekend. However, with the rain, I think we’ll wait for a drier day. The weather will also dictate our schedule this weekend – my daughter has mid-day soccer games on both Saturday and Sunday. We’ll have to wait and see if field conditions improve enough for the games. Update – Ann Arbor Rec & Ed cancelled all of Saturday’s soccer games.

Fortunately, it is a good weekend for movies. The Free Quality 16 movie this weekend is The Peanuts Movie on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 10a. Opening this weekend is Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. Also in theaters is Queen of Katwe (PG) and Storks (PG). 

Some other indoor options this weekend include Family Craft Time – Great Pumpkin Event and Mini Clay Figures: Pokemon. We have attended both events in the past and my daughter had a great time.

(Can we also celebrate that after this week we have two weeks without a Michigan home football game).

Beyond the calendar events, there is lots of fall fun to enjoy. Last weekend, we had a great time at Cedar Point for HalloWeekends. Check out our 7 tips for visiting Cedar Point.

We have plans to visit a Corn Maze later this month (and it’s always great to combine that with apple an orchard trip).
