Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks September 22-24, 2017

The weather this weekend is crazy! Temperatures in the upper 80s and even hitting 90s. Unfortunately, the outdoor pools are all closed for the season. 

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks -September 22-24

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

This weekend is Saline’s Oktoberfest. We’re planning to visit for the first time this year. There are plenty of kids activities in the Kinderplatz section.

It’s also a big LEGO Weekend. The LEGO Ninjago Movie opens this weekend and Toys R Us has a building event. Brickworld Michigan is also at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi on Saturday and Sunday.

DO the kids want to get wet this weekend? With the warm temperatures, I added a list of Parks for Splashing and updated our Indoor Pool Guide. Personally, we’re hoping for one more chance to visit the Argo Cascades. The weather this weekend is perfect for Argo!

Ann Arbor Parks for Splashing

With the warm temperatures, it’s hard to get in the Fall mood, but there are plenty of traditional Fall Activities – Apple Orchards/Cider Mills and Corn Mazes, and more. Be sure to check that they are open. I would definitely expect the warm temperatures to impact the apple orchard season.

    Ann Arbor with Kids is your go-to source for Ann Arbor Family Fun. It got its start in an activity list that I was compiling for the playgroup I ran at our church. When my daughter started preschool, the other moms were thrilled to hear about my list. I decided to take the list public in 2009.
