Arbor Annie’s Eclipse Week Picks – August 21-25

The big event this week is Monday’s eclipse with several local events. Then, the week wraps up with the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival.

Arbor Annie's Eclipse Week Picks - August 21-25, 2017

Arbor Annie’s Weekday Picks

Do you have eclipse plans for Monday? We’re waiting for a repair visit Monday morning, so we may have to watch it from home based on when they arrive. We do have glasses, so we are set if we have to watch from home. Make sure to check our Eclipse Guide for all of the local viewing events and information on how to stream it at home if the weather doesn’t cooperate.

After the eclipse Monday, the fun continues with Movie Night at EMU’s Stadium. They’ll be showing Finding Dory. We loved that movie. < Note this is a correction. I copied last year’s event and changed the description but not the title and didn’t look past the title when I wrote the roundup. Sorry for any confusion – I guess I’m as confused as Dory. >

Tuesday is a day for movies (good thing since rain is in the forecast). Rave wraps up their Summer Movie Clubhouse series with The LEGO Batman Movie. Then, Tuesday night Michigan Theater is showing Wizard of Oz.

Wednesday is a great day to explore a local park, or enjoy one of the activities in our Wednesday Activity Review since there aren’t many events on the calendar.

Thursday’s neatest event (to me at least) is Cardboard Monster Jaws at the Downtown Branch of AADL.

Friday has some awesome events. Thomas the Train returns for a final weekend at Crossroads Village. The Ypsilanti Heritage Festival kicks off their fun at noon. And, AADL has one of my daughter’s favorite events – Roller Coaster Engineering.
