Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - July 12-14

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

This weekend has two of our favorite annual events. My daughter won’t be able to join them since she is on a trip with her Girl Scout Troop.

Friday afternoon/evening is the Rolling Sculpture Car Show. We love checking out all of the cars and stopping for dinner downtown.

Rolling Sculpture Car Show - 2009 "I want a Ferrari"

The main day for the Saline Celtic Festival is on Saturday. I love watching the Ancient Athletic games. There is a whole Wee Island of kids activities. Be sure to check out our tips for attending.

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 – or plan a trip to another local pools, water parks, and spray grounds

Ann Arbor Swimming Pools & Other Places to Get Wet

Cherry picking continues, but it is not quite blueberry season. We will be keeping an eye on the blueberry crop.

    Movies

    This weekend’s new releases aren’t kid-friendly. But, Spider-Man Far From Home opened last weekend and is still a great choice this weekend.

    Spiderman: Far From Home - Peter's Classmates
    Angourie Rice, Jacob Batalon and Zendaya in Columbia Pictures’ SPIDER-MAN: ™ FAR FROM HOME.

    Avengers Endgame is still playing with the extra footage. We saw the extra version and it included a nice tribute to Stan Lee, a sneak peek of Spiderman: Far From Home, and an unfinished deleted scene.

    Avengers Endgame - Tony Stark Stranded

    Toy Story 4 is still going strong. Be sure to check our review and make plans to see it yourself.

    Toy Story 4 - Woody & Forky walking on a dark road
    LEADING THE WAY — In Disney•Pixar’s “Toy Story 4,” Bonnie’s beloved new craft-project-turned-toy, Forky, declares himself trash and not a toy, so Woody takes it upon himself to show Forky why he should embrace being a toy. Featuring Tom Hanks as the voice of Woody, and Tony Hale as the voice of Forky, “Toy Story 4” opens in U.S. theaters on June 21, 2019. ©2019 Disney•Pixar. All Rights Reserved.
