Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks July 28-30, 2017

After Art Fair last weekend, this weekend is much more low key, but we still have some great options for the weekend.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - July 28-30, 2017

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

Our top event pick for this weekend is actually beyond Ann Arbor. The Maker Faireis at The Henry Ford Museum on Saturday and Sunday. We have never been, but friends went last year and really enjoyed it.

Friday’s top pick is the 4-H Youth Show. Our writer Sarah took her kids on Tuesday and shared all the details.

4-H County Fair - Horse Show

The weather forecast looks great for Saturday & Sunday. With highs in the 80s, it is a great weekend to explore the many pools and water parks in the area.

10 Places to Get Wet: Ann Arbor Swimming PoolsAnother fun way to get wet is tubing on the Argo Cascades. We definitely recommend it.

Sunday Picks

Movies

New in theaters this week is Emoji Movie. I know my daughter wants to see it. Now that she’s done with softball and swimming we may have time to go see a movie. Last weekend’s openings include Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets. War for the Planet of the Apes, and Dunkirk which are all rated PG-13. We have not seen any of them although we have seen previews for Dunkirk. Also in theaters are Spider-Man HomecomingWonder Woman and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. We have yet to see either Despicable Me 3 or Cars 3 which are both still in theaters as well.
