Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Highlights

Other than Mother’s Day, the big event this weekend is Free Comic Book Day on Saturday. Bring the kids to one of the local comic book shops for your free comics. Of course this weekend also marks the release of Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness. We’re hoping it will be showing at the drive-in when they open in a couple weeks.
