Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks July 6-8

With 4th of July past, but many people on vacation, this weekend is light on events. But we have some great activity suggestions – especially since it will be a bit cooler.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - July 6-8

For us, the top activity this weekend is the release of Ant-Man and The Wasp. We saw it opening night Thursday. Check out our review and parental guidance

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

After an extended time with temperatures in the 90s, the temperature breaks a bit with temperatures in the low 80s.

That makes it a perfect weekend to pick fruit. There are both cherry and blueberry options.

It’s cooler, but still warm enough to visit one of our 11 places to get wet.

Ann Arbor District Library has some fun events. Personally, I think Candyship Battleland on Sunday (for grades 3-8) sounds fun. I bet my daughter would agree. Other fun AADL events include Crazy Craig’s Juggling Variety Show! on Friday, Dancing Babies with Dianne DudleyBeauty & the Beasts, and Board Game Afternoon on Saturday, and Caped Crusaders on Sunday.

    Movies

    This week’s big movie event is the release of Ant-Man and The Wasp. We saw it Thursday night. Be sure to check out our review and parental guidance before heading out to see it.

    Ant-Man and the Wasp - Cassie & Scott Lang

    Quality 16 wraps up this week’s free movie showings of Ferdinand at 10a on Friday.

    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.

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom - Poster

    After a 14 year wait, Incredibles 2 arrived in theaters last weekend. My daughter and I saw it twice – an advance screening and then returned with my husband and parents. It is on par with the original.  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.

    Solo: A Star Wars Story - Han & Chewie pilot the Falcon If you still haven’t seen Avengers: Infinity War, we definitely recommend it  – epsecially before seeing Ant-Man and The Wasp. Check out our review and parental guidance
