Arbor Annie’s Mother’s Day Weekend Picks May 10-12

Happy Mother’s Day to all my fellow moms. There are plenty of Mother’s Day activities around town. In addition, for those with school aged kids there are 2 huge events this weekend – Girls on the Run 5K and Science Olympiad.

Ann Arbor Mother's Day Weekend Picks - May 10-12

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

Many families of elementary school students will be spending Saturday at Pioneer High School for Science Olympiad. I retired this year after 4 years running our school’s team, but I’ll be there this year as a volunteer. Other families will be at Rolling Hills for the Girls on the Run 5K – and some families will be at both events.

Sunday is Mother’s Day – and Mother’s Day events dominate the weekend events calendar.

Ann Arbor Mother's Day Events

The final A2SO KinderConcerts of the year are Saturday (Dexter & Chelsea Libraries) and Monday (Ypsi Library Whittaker Branch). Friday morning I joined them at the Ann Arbor District Library’s Downtown Branch.

For families with young kids, Thomas completes his visit at Greenfield Village this weekend. We loved the event when my daughter was a toddler/preschooler including on Mother’s Day one year.

Day Out With Thomas at Greenfield VillageIf you have older kids into Sci-Fi, the Henry Ford Museum is the place to be with the opening of their Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds exhibit. We are hoping to visit next weekend and share details with you.

If you didn’t get to see, Avengers Endgame either of the last two weekends and want to see it, I would prioritize it before you see spoilers. Even the movie’s TV spots are starting to show spoilers. Be sure to check out our spoiler free review and parental guidance.

  • Movies

    New this weekend in theaters is Pokemon Detective Pikachu. I haven’t heard reviews yet, but I’m hopeful it will be a good movie. Early reviews don’t look semi-promising. Also opening this week is Tolkien. My daughter loves the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit books and movies and has been watching biography films at school, so this is on her list to see at some point.

    Avengers Endgame is still a hot ticket for this weekend. We definitely recommend it as a conclusion to the first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Emagine has an Autism Friendly showing of Endgame on Saturday.

    Avengers Endgame
