Arbor Annie’s Thanksgiving Picks

Happy Thanksgiving to all Ann Arbor with Kids readers whether you are staying in town or headed out of town for the holidays.

Arbor Annie's Thanksgiving Picks
With most local schools off today for the Thanksgiving weekend, there seemed to be quite a bit of traffic heading out of town last night and I’ve heard the airport is crowded today. If you are one of the travelers, have a safe trip.

If you are around town for Thanksgiving, I have some detail on events through Friday. Arbor Annie will have more picks for the rest of the weekend on Friday.

My daughter and I are planning to stay home most of today and get ready for the holiday. We aren’t hosting, but we are making a turkey shaped cake for Thanksgiving Dinner. We’re also going to be handling laundry and making sure the house is ready for Christmas decorating this weekend. We’re hoping to get a start on Friday (along with some shopping- although we’re hoping to do most of it online an avoid the crowds).

Friday is also a great day to kick off your holiday season. In addition to shopping, it is the first day that local Christmas Tree Farms are open.

Thanksgiving Weekend is a great time to see a movie. There are several great movies out that we recommend. Check out our reviews of Moana, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and Doctor Strange.

In addition to the new release movies, there are several other movie events. Michigan Theater is showing Warner Brothers cartoons on Friday around lunchtime. There are also some holiday movies this week: Quality 16 has A Christmas Story today (Wednesday), and Michigan Theater will kick off their holiday movies with a Sing Along White Christmas on Friday.
