Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

As you plan your weekend adventures, remember it will be busy around town with UM Graduation festivities. Congratulations to any readers who are graduating!

Saturday is the combination of Free Comic Book Day and Star Wars Day. We’re planning to celebrate both. Check out AADL’s Star Wars Fest.

Free Comic Book Day

Saturday is the Used Bike Sale at Huron High School. Come support their band and find a new bike for your child.

Sunday also features several big events. Get an early start with some fitness – the Burns Park Run or the Bike Ypsi Spring Ride. For the afternoon, you have the choice of Passport 2 Pittsfield or Water Hill Music Fest – Continued.

There are also several performances this weekend. Wild Swan’s Charlotte’s Web, Pioneer’s Fame the Musical, Huron’s Hits and Misdemeanor, the Ann Arbor Youth Chorale Spring Concert, and Bugs Bunny in Concert.

If you didn’t get to see, Avengers Endgame last weekend, it might be a bit easier to get tickets this weekend.  Be sure to check out our spoiler free review and parental guidance.

Avengers: Endgame - On the spaceship

For families with young kids, Day Out with Thomas continues at Greenfield Village. We loved the event when my daughter was a toddler/preschooler. Thomas will be visiting through next weekend (May 11-12).

    Looking Forward to Next Week

    I know there has been some confusion around Tuesday, May 7 and whether AAPS has school. School is ON for Tuesday. There is no special election so we had off on Friday, February 15 instead for a 4 day mid-winter break. The 2019-2020 calendar is not yet released, but I shared my best guesses here.
