Arbpr Annie Weekend Highlights November 4-6. Kids dressed for cool weather with fall leaves

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Highlights – November 4-6

Spread the love

Are you ready to Fall Back this weekend?  

I’m relieved to have a teen so I really get the extra hour of sleep especially as her sport season ends on Saturday. We’re also planning to take advantage of the warm weather this week to transition our outside decorations from spooky to Christmas-y (but holding off on turning them on until after Thanksgiving).

This is a big weekend for theater locally. Pioneer and Skyline both kickoff their fall shows this weekend. And in looking to next week, Tuesday is a day off for Ann Arbor Public Schools due to election day – make sure to drop your ballot off early or vote that day.

We are in the transition between Halloween and Christmas. There are a few events like the Great Pumpkin Roll to dispose of your pumpkins – and information on Candy Buy Back & Wrapper Recycling. At the same time, WNIC made the switch to Christmas music Friday morning. Since Tuesday I have been adding Christmas events and updating holiday articles. We will start sharing them next week as we add more events.

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Highlights

This is a big week for theater & other performances.

Friday, Pioneer’s Into the Woods kicks off it’s 2 week run. Saturday is the start of Skyline’s production of Urinetown also with a 2 week run. Saline HS has Clue this weekend only.

Events from our Sponsors


Start the weekend on Friday with Ypsi’s First Friday. The event includes a Dio de los Muertos celebration followed by an outdoor showing of the movie Coco.

Sunday is a day to capture your little one’s hand or footprints with Captured in Clay at The Little Seedling and Precious Prints at My Urban Toddler. Both require advance signup.

Then, transition to Christmas celebrations with Santa Arrives at Cabela’s on Saturday evening. Visits start Sunday and they suggest advance reservations. Speaking of Christmas, we are working to update all of our Christmas content and event listings. Most of our articles have been updated, but we are still adding the events and waiting on announcements of other events.
