Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - November 1-3

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Roundup – November 1-3

I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween and is dry and warm after cold and wet trick or treating.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - November 1-3

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

Halloween events wrap up this weekend. There are things like The Great Pumpkin Roll at Mill Pond Park, Ypsilanti’s All Hallows Illumination, and Haunted Castle Masquerade for teens at Ypsilanti Library – Whittaker Branch.

Do you have too much Halloween candy? There are several Candy Buy Back programs – and they don’t care whether you have candy because your kid collected too much or you didn’t give out as much as planned due to the weather conditions.

November is a great time to visit the Henry Ford Museum. Saturday admission is just $5 to each of their venues in honor of Henry Ford paying workers $5/day. Or wait for National STEAM Day next Saturday for free admission. They currently have a LEGO Towers exhibit which we would love to see.

This weekend is a weekend for Theater! Pioneer High School starts their run of Matilda on Saturday which runs through next weekend. Stay tuned for a review. Then, on Sunday, Hebrew Day School is hosting Preschool Theater Games with Wild Swan Theater.

Sunday is one of my favorite days of the year – when the Clock Falls Back and we get an extra hour of sleep. Don’t forget to reset any clocks that don’t automatically reset.

Stay tuned for Christmas/Holiday content over the next week. I have already started updating last year’s events and articles for 2019.

There are still a couple of corn mazes open this weekend, so you still have another chance.

In winter activities, Buhr Park Outdoor Ice Arena opens on Saturday. They have open skate hours on Saturday and Sunday.

Holiday Crafts kick off this weekend at Michaels. Be sure to check out the schedule (we are still adding events to the calendar)
