Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks – May 5-7

This weekend is one of my favorite weekends of the year. Free Comic Book Day and the release of a new Marvel movie. There’s even a Star Wars event this weekend, one of the few May the Fourth Be With You events this year.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - May 5-7

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

For our family, the two big events this weekend are Free Comic Book Day and the release of Guardians of the Galaxy.

This year my daughter isn’t playing soccer, so we don’t have to juggle her soccer schedule. This should allow us to visit a comic book shop at opening for Free Comic Book Day. Check the link for our past experiences at both Vault of Midnight and Fun 4 All.

Even though my daughter and I saw Guardians of the Galaxy on Tuesday, we are planning to see it this weekend with my husband and friends. We actually bought our tickets a month ago for the new Emagine Theater in Saline.

This year I was very disappointed in a lack of events for Star Wars Day – May the Fourth. My daughter was sure to wear a favorite Star Wars shirt on Thursday. There is one Star Wars event this weekend: LEGO Star Wars Event at Toys R Us on Saturday from noon-2p.

This is a weekend to tour municipal facilities with:

This is the second weekend that Thomas the Train is at Greenfield Village. If you have a Thomas fan, we definitely recommend Day Out with Thomas. The winner of our ticket giveaway attended last week and said that they had a great time.
