Arbor Annie’s Weekday Roundup – July 9-13

This week is back to normal after the Fourth of July last week. There are some great events this week and next weekend.
Arbor Annie's Weekday Picks - July 9-13, 2018

Arbor Annie’s Weekday Picks

Arbor Annie’s Top Picks for the week are ways to keep cool plus holiday celebrations.

Monday is going to be a hot week – with warm temperatures continuing all week. Check out our 11 Places to Get Wet this Summer – Ann Arbor Pools, Water Parks, Spray Grounds, and more. If you have little ones, the Tot Splashes are a great time to visit.

Arbor Annie’s top pick for the week is Friday’s Rolling Sculpture Car Show. It’s been several years since we’ve been able to go, but it is one of our favorite Ann Arbor events. This week we are in town and have no softball games on the schedule.

On my wishlist is the First Wednesday Food Truck Rally at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market. Unfortunately we never seem to be able to make it. This week, we’re double booked with a swim meet and a softball game. Also in food, Blueberry Picking kicks off in earnest this week. Dexter Blueberry Farms opens on July 11 and Hazens on July 13. Cherry Picking is wrapping up – Wasem is done, Spicer only has Tart Cherries.

It’s also a great week for concerts. The Summer Carillon Concert Series starts on North Campus on Monday evening. Wednesday is the Children’s Concert – Ann Arbor Civic Band. Of course other Summer Concert Series like Sonic Lunch and concerts in Chelsea, Dexter, and Saline continue this week.

Ann Arbor Summer Concert Series

My daughter’s pick of the library events is Candy Science Experiments. Other fun library events include Paper Plate Flying SaucersJellyfish Crafts, and Build a Scribble Bot!.

Are your kids looking for new summer reading material? The Jay Lee Court Book Sale is Thursday-Saturday.
