Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks August 4-6, 2017

Judging by short event lists (and vacation pictures showing up in my Facebook memories), summer travel is in full swing. If you’re in town, check out Arbor Annie’s weekend picks.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - August 4-6, 2017

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

Fridays events are highlighted by First Friday events at Domino Farms, Ypsilanti, and Kerrytown. Hopefully the rain will stay in the morning as currently forecasted. Are you headed to any of the events?

Sunday’s top pick is Fairy Day at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market (part of the Sunday Artisan Market). Fairy lovers will have a great time. Hopefully the 60% chance of rain won’t keep the fairies away.

The weather forecast looks great for Saturday. With a high in the upper 70s, it is a great weekend to explore the many pools and water parks in the area. After working around the house last weekend, we are looking for a chance to relax this weekend.

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