Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - July 26-28

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

It’s a great weekend to explore beyond Ann Arbor. Chelsea has their Sounds & Sights Festival, the Henry Ford Museum is hosting the Maker Faire, and the ACS Big Dig of Michigan at Southfield City Centre Plaza.

Be sure to check out our list of Local pools, water parks, and spray grounds. The weather looks great for Saturday and a chance of afternoon storms on Sunday. We’re planning some type of water activity for Saturday – maybe Rolling Hills or the Argo Cascades for tubing or kayaking.

Ann Arbor Swimming Pools & Other Places to Get Wet

Health events this weekend are the Teddy Bear Clinic to ease kids anxiety about the doctor and the Free Mouthguard Clinic at University of Michigan School of Dentistry for athletes (student & adults).

Blueberry Picking kicked off last week.

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.
