Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - December 8-10

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

Like last weekend Arbor Annie’s weekend picks are split into holiday and non-holiday events.

This is a weekend for theater. In Non-Holiday shows, Wild Swan is performing Little Women, and A2CT’s Junior Theatre is performing Peter Pan Jr. In holiday shows, Theatre Nova presents The World Without a Panto Claus. Meanwhile there are several performances of The Nutcracker, and Spirit of the Season in Milan.

There are tons of opportunities to see Santa this weekend. Don’t miss any of these Santa Sightings and Santa Meals options.

Holiday movies include Home Alone for free at the Michigan Theater and Polar Express at Quality 16.

We love Holiday Nights at Greenfield Village. They’re already sold out for Friday and Saturday this week and a few other future dates. I suggest buying your tickets now if you want to attend. We’ve been attending since my daughter was 4.

In non-Holiday events, this weekend is the Winter Art Tour between Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti. Several locations have kids activities.
