Arbor Annie’s Weekday Highlights – October 24-28

While we usually only share Weekly Roundups during school breaks, there are a number of great events this week that I wanted to make sure our readers didn’t miss. So, I decided it was worth a Weekday Highlights Newsletter. 

Arbor Annie's Weekday Picks - October 24-28

Halloween is in just a week. With Halloween fast approaching, there are a number of great Halloween themed events happening this week. My top pick for the week is Thursday’s YpsiGlow, a Halloween themed event similar to FoolMoon and also by WonderFool productions. The current weather forecast is for rain, so I am hoping that conditions improve before Thursday.

Competing with YpsiGlow on Thursday night is the 10th Annual Halloween Hootenanny at Zingerman’s. Also on Thursday is the Fairy Tea at Crazy Wisdom Bookstore.

Beyond Halloween, there are a few other great events this week. The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra is bringing their KinderConcerts to the Ypsi Library on Monday. Wild Swan kicks off their 2016-2017 season with The Ugly Duckling on Thursday.

Wednesday is the first half-day for AAPS Elementary Schools. Kids can Paint a Watercolor Leaf at the Traverwood Branch of AADL.
