Arbor Annie's Super Bowl Weekend Picks - January 31-February 2

Arbor Annie’s Super Bowl Weekend Roundup – January 31-February 2

Sunday is both Groundhog Day and Super Bowl Sunday. When writing the article title I debated which to use and decided to go with Super Bowl. Although I am hoping the Groundhog does not see a shadow. I’m ready for winter to be over

Arbor Annie's Super Bowl Weekend Picks - January 31-February 2

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

If you are ready to start looking at preschools for next year, there are several Open Houses this weekend – including Early Learning Center, the sponsor of our Preschool Guide.

Saturday is the start of February which is Black History Month. Be sure to check our list of Family-Friendly Black History Month events.

Saturday is the Chinese New Year celebration at Briarwood Mall. After last weekend’s event at the library was canceled, I expect the mall event to be crowded.

With February starting, there are also Valentine’s themed events starting on Saturday.

School open houses continue this weekend and next week. There are preschool open houseshigh school information sessions, and AAPS starts their Kindergarten/Young 5 roundups next week. I know my mind is spinning after attending two high school sessions last week.

Celebrate winter at Milan’s Let’s Chill Winter Fest or Buhr Blitz at Buhr Park, or Junior Naturalist: Michigan Mammals at County Farm Park.

You can also join a Fairy Party at Sweetwaters or run a Ninja Obstacle Course this weekend.

Or shake things up with Ice Cream for Breakfast day with Beezy’s & Go!.

And of course, wrap up the weekend watching the Super Bowl – either for the game, the commercials, or both.

Also this weekend, is the Burns Park Players performances of The Little Mermaid. The show continues with 2 performances next week.

Of course the weekend wraps up with the Super Bowl on Sunday night. This means that there will be Girl Scouts around town selling cookies this weekend at early booths. Since we’ll be out selling, I am very glad the temperatures are rising.
