Arbor Annie’s Weekday Picks June 12-16, 2017

I usually save Weekday Roundups for weeks when school is out. However, there are a number of great events going on this week. With it being the last week of school, I’m less concerned about my daughter staying up late.

Arbor Annie's Weekday Picks - June 12-16

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

The big event this week is the continuation of Top of the Park. 
Don’t miss our Top of the Park Kids Guide for all the details on Top of the Park – Logistics, Kid Zone tents, Movies, and more. The movies are a bit late for this week, but I’d really like to check out The Curious Game on Tuesday or Wednesday. 

Top of the Park 2017 Kids Guide - Ann Arbor Summer Festival

This week is Ann Arbor Restaurant Week. We are definitely planning a few dinners out this week.

Ann Arbor Restaurant Week Summer 2017

The weather is supposed to be hot this week. That makes local pools, water parks, and spray grounds a great choice! Many are open after school. Be sure to verify their hours this week – many are operating on limited hours this week until school lets out on Friday.

Strawberry Season is in full swing in in our area. Rowe’s Produce Farm is a great place to pick strawberries – but the heat will hasten the end of the season, so plan to pick soon.

Movies

The big news in movies this week is the start of the summer movie series at Quality 16 and Emagine (Cinemark starts their series next week).

Quality 16 Free Movies - Summer 2017Emagine Free Kids Movies

New in theaters this week is The Mummy starring Tom Cruise. While my daughter sees many PG-13 movies, the 1999 version is the only movie she asked us to turn off. Even the trailer for The Mummy freaks her out, so I am not recommending this one for the kids.

However, we do have reviews of several other shows still in theaters. New this week is our review of Wonder Woman – complete with parental guidance..

We also have  reviews with parental guidance for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
