Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - August 2-4

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

The event calendar is in a bit of an August slump. I know for our family, August is the best time to travel since swim team and softball seasons are over. While there are a few big events, the overall list is fairly short.

The Ann Arbor District Library LEGO Contest moves to the weekend this year. There’s still time to finish your entry on Saturday before drop-off on Sunday. Then check out all the amazing creations on Sunday evening! 

This weekend is Thunder Over Michigan Air Show on Saturday and Sunday, a late add to the event calendar. I saw some of the planes circling overhead on Wednesday night.

The first weekend is also Ann Arbor Pride. They have a kid-zone on Saturday and the family picnic on Sunday at Wheeler Park.

Be sure to check out our list of Local pools, water parks, and spray grounds. The weather looks great for water activities – warm and no rain. We had a great time kayaking the Cascades from Argo to Gallup last weekend.
