This weekend has tons of great events on the calendar. Highlights include Rolling Sculpture Car Show, Saline Celtic Festival, Summer Game Spectacular, and Michigan Stadium Movie Night.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - July 13-15

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

The weekend starts with Friday’s Rolling Sculpture Car Show. It’s traditionally been one of our favorite events. However, with the hot forecast and 3 nights of softball this week, we’re ready to be home for a night.

The Saline Celtic Festival starts Friday night, but the main family-friendly attractions are Saturday during the day. Check out our 5 Tips for the Saline Celtic Festival.

Saline Celtic Festival - 5 Tips

Saturday is also the day for AADL’s Summer Game Spectacular. Stop by Veterans Park for the fun. And with the heat, maybe plan a stop at the pool.

Saturday concludes with Black Panther movie night at Michigan Stadium. We already have our tickets.

This is a great weekend to pick fruit. Blueberry picking is open now and limited cherry picking continues.

The weekend is going to be hot. So be sure to visit one of our 11 places to get wet

We are also looking forward to the return of the Harry Potter movies to TV. Both the USA and SyFy Networks are showing the movies this weekend. It’s been about 6 months since Freeform lost the rights. We have seen the movies so may times we can just randomly start watching them as our schedule allows.

    Movies

    New this week is Hotel Transylvania 3 and Skyscraper. My daughter and I saw the first Hotel Transylvania several years ago but have not followed the series since.
     
    If you haven’t seen Ant-Man and The Wasp, we really enjoyed it last weekend. Be sure to check our review and parental guidance before heading to the theater.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is a good choice – but be sure to check out our review and parental guidance to see if it’s right for your kids. Emagine has an Autism Friendly show on Saturday morning.

    After a 14 year wait, Incredibles 2 arrived in theaters last month. Check out our review and the trailer. My husband and parents loved it as much as my daughter and I.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story continues in theaters. Check out our review and Parental Guidance before buying your tickets.
