Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - July 6-8

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks July 5-7

My apologies for the delay on the weekend picks. The backend of the site is having issues.  At least the front end is still working for you. I am going to wait for Sunday evening/Monday morning to try to rebuild the site.

There are still a couple of Independence Day events through the weekend. Other than that, it is a light weekend for events due to the holiday and people being on vacation.

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

Top of the Park wraps up this weekend. Be sure to check out our Top of the Park Kids Guide for the daily schedule, tips for attending, and more. It closes on Sunday with The Greatest Showman: Top of the Park Movie.

Ann Arbor 2019 Top of the Park Kids GuideThere are still a few Independence Day celebrations. Greenfield Village is hosting us for Salute to America which runs through Saturday. Whitmore Lake has Boat Parade of Lights on Friday and Fireworks on Saturday.

With less events on the calendar, it is a great time to check out local pools, water parks, and spray grounds.

Cherry Season has started. Be sure to check for updates with the orchards because it can be a short season.

    Movies

    Spider-Man: Far From Home was released on Tuesday. We saw it on Friday and enjoyed it. It definitely contains Avengers: Endgame spoilers, so I suggest watching Endgame first. With the site issues, I haven’t had a chance to write a review yet, but stay tuned.

    Last weekend, we saw Avengers Endgame again with the extra footage. It included a nice tribute to Stan Lee and a sneak peek of Spiderman: Far From Home. It is still showing this weekend at Quality 16 and Cinemark.

    Looking Forward to Next Week

    With the holiday and site issues, I haven’t been able to add all of next week’s events – especially from AADL. However, there are a few big events next week. Next Friday (the 12th) is the Rolling Sculpture Car Show which we always love. Saturday the 13th is the big day for the  Saline Celtic Festival. The library has their Zingerman’s Tasting event and two Summer Game Celebrations. And AAHOM hosts Domino World again this year.
