Arbor Annie’s Art Fair Weekend Picks July 19-21

Be sure to stay cool this weekend! It’s going to be a very hot weekend – which is no surprise since it is Art Fair Weekend. It is also the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing.

The Ann Arbor Art Fair started Thursday and runs through Sunday. Be sure to check out our Kids Guide to the Art Fair for kid friendly fun including a Printable Scavenger Hunt and tips for staying cool.

This weekend is also the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 landing on the moon. There are some fun activities to commemorate the landing on Friday and Saturday.

With an Excessive Heat warning through Saturday night, it’s a good weekend for indoor activities. Be sure to check out our list of Indoor Activity and Events.

Local pools, water parks, and spray grounds are also a great option with the extreme heat. With increased crowds in Ann Arbor, it’s a great week to try Rolling Hills, Jump Island, or one of the splash playgrounds outside Ann Arbor.

Power Outage Update: Independence Lake is closed due to the power outage. Other locations are open.

Blueberry Picking kicked off this week. However, I recommend going very early or waiting until Sunday because of the extreme heat.

    Movies

    Power Outage Update: All local theaters appear to be in regions without power outages. They are a great way to cool off in the middle of the day.

    The Lion King opens on Friday with showings starting on Thursday night. We are looking at our schedule to see if we can fit in a matinee. 

    THE LION KING – Featuring the voices of John Kani as Rafiki, Alfre Woodard as Sarabi and James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Disney’s “The Lion King” is directed by Jon Favreau. In theaters July 19, 2019. © 2019 Disney Enterprises, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

    Spider-Man Far From Home opened earlier this month and is a great choice.

    Spider-Man in Columbia Pictures’ SPIDER-MAN: ™ FAR FROM HOME

    Avengers Endgame is still playing with the extra footage. We saw the extra version and it included a nice tribute to Stan Lee, a sneak peek of Spiderman: Far From Home, and an unfinished deleted scene.

    Toy Story 4 is still going strong. Be sure to check our review and make plans to see it yourself.

    • Men in Black International
    • Aladdin

    Other upcoming Family Friendly movies through the summer are:

    • August 2 – Dora and the Lost City of Gold
