Arbor Annie's Carnival Weekend Roundup - June 23-25, 2017

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

The big event on the calendar this weekend is the Ann Arbor Jaycees Carnival. They hosted us yesterday so that we could share a review and information with you. Don’t miss our review which includes information about construction detours.

2017 Ann Arbor Jaycees Carnival

Of course Top of the Park continues. There are some fun KidZone tents and Sunday is Kids Night with a KidsRock concert and the movie is Secret Life of Pets. Get all the details in our Top of the Park Kids Guide.Top of the Park 2017 Kids Guide - Ann Arbor Summer Festival

Temperatures dip a bit this weekend – the highs are in the low-mid 70s and Friday there is a forecast for rain. Cooler temperatures means the local pools, water parks, and spray grounds won’t be as crowded!

With rain in the forecast for Friday, it might be a good day to check out the new Colby Bounce in Briarwood Mall. My daughter and I visited it for our Wednesday Activity Review.

Movies

New in theaters last week was Cars 3. My daughter had class event the night of the screening and we were busy last weekend, so I don’t have a review to share yet. However, don’t miss my interview with the Filmmakers from the Detroit Auto Show.

We do have reviews including parental guidance of several other shows still in theaters including Wonder Woman, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Personally, our movie watching this weekend is going to include watching Avatar with our daughter. She is heading to Disney World on vacation with her grandparents soon and wants to see the movie before experiencing the new Avatar rides at Animal Kingdom.
