Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks September 29-October 1, 2017

This weekend certainly feels more like fall than last weekend. That makes it a perfect time for fall fun like corn mazes, apple orchards, hay rides, and more. 

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - September 29-October 1

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

Looking at the event calendar this weekend, one of the biggest events is from our sponsor, the HVPOM Mom2Mom sale. With the changing weather, it’s time to stock up on winter clothing, outerwear, and even Halloween costumes.

HVPOM Mom2Mom Sale - September 30, 2017 - 9a-noon - Saline

Speaking of Halloween, this weekend is the kickoff of workshops for YpsiGLOW. The Ypsilanti Library will start Dragon Making for the event. Continue the Halloween fun on Sunday with Hocus Pocus: Toyota Family Friendly Film Series at Michigan Theater.

The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra starts their KinderConcerts series on Friday with Harmonious Harp.

With more fall like temperatures, we’re planning some traditional Fall Activities – possibly an Apple Orchards/Cider Mills or Corn Maze this weekend. Beyond that, there are several fall fun activities on the calendar like Apple Cider Pressing and Hay Rides at both Hudson Mills and Marsh View Meadows.

    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.
