Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks August 18-20, 2017

This is a great weekend for activities. The AADL LEGO Contest on Friday is always one of our favorites. Plus Dexter Daze and Saline Summerfest are this weekend.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - August 18-20, 2017

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

If you have a train loving toddler or preschooler, they will love Day Out with Thomas which rolls into Crossroads Village for 2 weekends starting Friday. My daughter loved this event when she was younger.

Day Out With Thomas at Crossroads Village

Saturday has a 60% chance of storms, so it’s a good thing there are some good indoor events. Explore Dearborn’s Henry Ford Museum for free since it’s National Aviation Day, prepare for the eclipse with a Family Eclipse Talk at the Michigan Ave branch of Ypsilanti District Library, or attend the Healthy Kids Fair

Hopefully Saturday’s weather holds out for the Fire Truck Muster at Ypsi’s Riverside Park. Currently, the forecast has the raining ending by noon.

The weather forecast for Sunday shows it should be clear (but hot – mid 80s) for outdoor events like the Pedal to Pollinators Garden Bike Tour and Sunday Afternoon Naturalist – Trees

With the weather, Saturday may not be a good pool day, but Sunday is a great day to explore one of our places to get wet
