Arbor Annie’s Weekday Picks

We love the Townie Street Party which is on Monday night. It’s a great time to shop the Youth Art Fair, enjoy the family-friendly Art Activity Zone, listen to music, and enjoy local food. 

The Ann Arbor Art Fair starts on Thursday and runs through Sunday. Be sure to check out our Kids Guide to the Art Fair for tips and kid friendly fun.

This week is also the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 landing on the moon. There are some fun activities to commemorate the landing all weekend.

As is typical for Art Fair week, it is going to be hot this week.That makes it a great time to check out local pools, water parks, and spray grounds. With increased crowds in Ann Arbor, it’s a great week to try Rolling Hills, Jump Island, or one of the splash playgrounds outside Ann Arbor.

Blueberry Picking kicks off this week. I’m thinking of making a day of it and exploring Dexter – if the weather and our schedule line up.
