Arbor Annie’s Weekday Picks June 26-30, 2017

How was your first week of summer break? We kept busy with my daughter’s activities. On Friday, we had a chance to attend a couple of library events. (Yes, we visited 2 libraries for 2 events back to back. My daughter couldn’t decide which one she wanted to do more, so we did both). The good news is that there are more great library events this week!

Arbor Annie's Weekday Picks - June 26-30, 2017

Arbor Annie’s Weekday Event Picks

The Fourth of July holiday kicks off in full force this week even though it is not until next Tuesday. There are Fireworks and Concerts this Week! Don’t miss our roundup of Fourth of July Celebrations.

Ann Arbor Fourth of July Celebrations

Top of the Park is the highlight of events this week. It is truly a great week of activities! There are lots of great Top of the Park events this week. Australia’s Strange Fruit will perform Tall Tales of the High Seas twice a night from Wednesday-Friday (SCHEDULE CHANGE). The movies are also pretty great this week: Men in BlackStar Wars: The Force Awakens, and Beetlejuice. My daughter is upset she’s out of town this week. She would have liked to see all 3 movies.
