Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - May 17-19

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks May 17-19

After a very busy week, we were hoping for a bit of a break this weekend. But, there are so many great events this weekend, that our weekend will still be quite busy.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - May 17-19

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

Last Saturday Pioneer was busy with elementary students participating in Science Olympiad. This weekend, it is hosting the AAPS Middle and High School bands for Picnic Pops – and everyone who wants to come hear some great music. It looks like the weather will be great for the performance. We attended last year when it was moved inside due to rain. My daughter is looking forward to playing in the concert this year.

Sunday is Huron River Day.  My daughter had a great time last year kayaking and trying stand up paddleboarding. She was excited to hear they were offering it again this year. Be sure to check out our review of Huron River Day from last year. Hopefully the weather forecast improves – currently there is an 80% chance of rain with a risk of severe thunderstorms.The final A2SO KinderConcerts of the year are Saturday (Dexter & Chelsea Libraries) and Monday (Ypsi Library Whittaker Branch). Friday morning I joined them at the Ann Arbor District Library’s Downtown Branch.

Ann Arbor Still Water Paddles - Kayaking into the Dock

Young People’s Theater is performing Newsies this weekend. Their plays are usually great, so I recommend them.

If you’re looking for an indoor activity in bad weather, check out AACME (Ann Arbor Creativity & Making Expo) at Downtown Branch of AADL.
