Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks June 9-11, 2017

I hope you have lots of free time in your weekend schedule for all the great events this weekend! My daughter is sad to miss some of the weekend events since she is going camping with her Girl Scout troop.

Make sure you don’t miss the Looking Forward To Next Week Session. There are lots of great events during the week. Unfortunately, AAPS and many other schools are still in session.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - June 9-11

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

There are so many great events this weekend that it is hard to pick which to attend! This week is the start of Top of the Park, the Ya’ssoo Greek Festival of Ann Arbor is this weekend, and Restaurant Week starts on Sunday. Plus great events like the Mayor’s Green Fair on Friday night and the Ann Arbor Airport Pancake Breakfast on Sunday.

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. We plan to start our weekend at Top of the Park before my daughter heads to camp. We are looking forward to BBQ at Slows in Culinary Row! If school was out, attending the Sunday night movie – Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them would be a no brainer. But, after a weekend camping, I’m not sure my daughter is ready for a late night at the movies. I liked it much better when Top of the Park started on the last day of school.

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

This weekend is the Ya’ssoo Greek Festival of Ann Arbor

Then, Sunday kicks off Ann Arbor Restaurant Week. We are really behind on looking over the restaurants. We usually have a plan of where to eat by this time.

Ann Arbor Restaurant Week Summer 2017

The weather is supposed to be hot this weekend. That makes local pools, water parks, and spray grounds a great choice!

Strawberry Season is in full swing in in our area. Rowe’s Produce Farm is a great place to pick strawberries. They do get very crowded on the weekend. I recommend going early in the day to avoid lines – and the heat.

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.
