Arbor Annie’s Weekday Picks June 19-23, 2017

It’s the first week of summer. I’d love to take the chance to sleep in, but my daughter started swim practice on Monday. At least she only goes 3 days a week. Hopefully we’ll have a day or two to sleep in this week.

Arbor Annie's Weekday Picks - June 19-23, 2017

Arbor Annie’s Weekday Event Picks

The big event this week is the Ann Arbor Jaycees Carnival. It runs Wednesday through Sunday. My daughter loves the rides and can’t wait to visit again this year.

Top of the Park also continues this year. Don’t miss our Top of the Park Kids Guidefor all the details on Top of the Park – Logistics, Kid Zone tents, Movies, Directions, and more. The  best movie for kids this week is Hidden Figures on Tuesday. Wednesday’s Good Morning Vietnam would be great for a date night, or adult night out.

The weather is supposed to be a bit cooler this week. But since it’s the first week of summer, it’s not going to deter my daughter from wanting to go swimming. Find some great options at local pools, water parks, and spray grounds!

Over the summer, the Ann Arbor District Library offers some great events for school aged kids. This week is no exception. Activities include Pompom LaunchersBalloon CrittersMake a Marionette, and  Straw Bridge Engineering.
