Arbor Annie’s Easter Weekend Picks April 19-21

This weekend is highlighted by Easter – from school closures on Friday to Egg Hunts to Closures on Sunday.

Arbor Annie's Easter Weekend Picks - April 19-21

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

Between spring break and Easter, the weekend event calendar is fairly short.

The weekend starts with many schools (including Ann Arbor Public Schools) closed on Friday.

Easter celebrations – especially egg hunts are in full force on Saturday. Check out our Easter Egg Hunt Guide sponsored by Brittany Bennion Photography. There is a lot of rain in the forecast for Friday and Saturday. We will try to update any egg hunts based on weather adjustments – but it is best to check with the event hosts. You can find links in each event listing. If you head out, be sure to take boots and umbrellas.
