Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - December 6-8

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Roundup – December 6-8

This weekend is packed full of events. Compared to last year there is one less weekend between Thanksgiving and Christmas, so all of the events are compressed to fewer weekends.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - December 6-8

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

The weekend kicks off with First Friday celebrations – including holiday themed events. You can also enjoy events kid free with several Parents Night Out programs.

Holiday events kick off in full-force this weekend. Friday night is the annual KindleFest. We will finally make it one of these years.

This year, Greenfield Village is hosting us at Holiday Nights on Friday. We love Holiday Nights and definitely recommend it to Ann Arbor families.

This is also a big weekend for Tree Lightings and Parades. There are lightings in Ypsilanti as part of their First Friday celebration and parades in Manchester, Chelsea, Saline, and Milan.
