Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks October 7-9

This weekend’s weather forecast is a definite improvement over last weekend. Despite the hurricane threatening Florida, our weather is looking clear. Temperatures are also forecast to be in the 60s – perfect fall days.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - October 7-9

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Roundup 

With the perfect weather this weekend, I’m hopeful that we can fit in a trip to the apple orchard.

Friday night is a busy night with a couple of fun evening events…Fun Friday Night at UM Museum of Natural History, First Fridays Ypsilanti, and the Toledo Zoo’s Night at the Museum. It’s a shame that they all fall on the same day.

Among the many activities on Saturday is the Huron Valley Parents of Multiples Mom2Mom Sale. It’s a great chance to stock up on fall and winter items.

There are a couple of great events that I wish we could attend on Saturday. Unfortunately, my daughter’s soccer game is right in the middle of the day. A few cool Saturday events are Scarecrow Mystery Dash at Independence Lake, Recycled Cardboard Town Challenge at Downtown Branch of AADL, and Zombie Apocalypse Survival at Hudson Mills MetroPark.

Sunday kicks off Fire Prevention Week. This year’s focus is on replacing expired Smoke Detectors. Several local fire departments are holding open houses Sunday through next week. Be sure to check the schedule.

Of course, it is a decent weekend at the movies. Angry Birds is the Free Morning Movie on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday mornings at Quality 16. My daughter was also quick to point out that Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life comes out on Friday. She has read all of the books and is making plans with a friend to see the movie. Also in theaters is Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and Storks.

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).
