Arbor Annie’s Weekend Roundup – February 22-24

We finally had a week without a snow day. But, with school closed on Monday for President’s Day the weekend seems to have arrived quickly. Still, Arbor Annie has the best picks for the weekend.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - February 22-24

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

This is a big weekend for local performances. Wild Swan Theater is performing Under the African Sky and the Tappan Players are performing James and the Giant Peach. Both have mutliple performances. Saturday is Not Just For Kids: Peg + Cat – LIVE! at Michigan Theater and Sunday is Storytelling for Kids at The Ark.

It’s a video game weekend at AADL with Super Smash Bros. Ulitmate on Saturday and All-Ages Mario Kart 8 DELUXE Tournament on Sunday.
