Arbor Annie’s Memorial Day Weekend Picks – May 26-29

Memorial Day Weekend traditionally marks the start of summer. Pools open, schools start to wind down, and it’s an enjoyable long weekend. 

Arbor Annie's Memorial Day Weekend Picks - May 26-29, 2017

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

The weather forecast for this weekend is constantly changing. At the time of writing, Sunday looks like the stormy day. However, each day has shown a clear forecast and a rainy forecast on different checks. I’m not sure what to advise you (or myself), so I am covering all the bases with both outdoor and indoor recommendations.

Due to the holiday, there are not a ton of events on the calendar this weekend. However, the big “event” this weekend is the opening of local pools, water parks, and spray grounds.
