Arbor Annie’s End of Spring Break Weekend Picks – March 29-31

Spring Break comes to an end this weekend. Whether you stayed home or are just returning from your travels, Arbor Annie has the best weekend events for you.

Arbor Annie's End of Spring Break Weekend Picks - March 29-31

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

With spring break wrapping up, this weekend is a little light on activities. (But don’t worry next week will more than make up for the lack of events this week).

Are the kids out of reading material after spring break? Check out our sponsor, the JLC Book Sale and find some new books. All books are just $1 plus, if you buy 10 books, you get 10 free.

JLC Booksale

The Ann Arbor District Library has some great events this weekend. The two that stood out to me were Friday’s Walkalong Gliders and Saturday’s The In Between: Quest for the Keystone.

This weekend is the 47th Annual Dance for Mother Earth Powwow on both Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday is also Give Kids a Smile Day. If you need assistance getting dental care for your child it is a great program.

March is also time for local maple syrup events. This is the last weekend for Journey to the Sugarbush. My daughter loved the maple syrup field trip she attended a few years ago with her class.

    The big movie release this weekend is Disney’s live-action Dumbo. We haven’t seen it and likely will not make it this weekend. The movie is rated PG.

    Captain Marvel continued its strong run through last weekend. We saw it opening weekend. Be sure to check out our review and parental guidance suggestions.

    Captain Marvel - Carol Danvers

    Quality 16’s Free Morning Movies series continues. This weekend’s move is Hotel Transylvania 3.

    Free Morning Movies - Spring 2019 at Quality 16

    Other first run family-friendly movies include:

    • Wonder Park
    • How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World. 
    • Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

    Other upcoming releases are:

    • April 5: Shazam!
    • April 12: Missing Link
    • April 26: Avengers: Endgame

    Depending on the age of your kids, there may be a few other movies of interest. Apollo 11 looks like a good documentary about the mission that landed on the moon. I know several people (mostly with teen girls) who have seen Five Feet Apart.
