Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks October 13-15, 2017

The events calendar is jam packed this weekend! October always seems to have the best events. There are great Halloween events, fall fun, and much more. 

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - October 13-15

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Picks

Friday’s top event pick is the Zombie Run at Nichols Arboretum. Of course, the big news on Friday is the opening of Buddy’s Pizza. I’ll be there for a media preview in the morning, so be sure to check the site for an article this weekend.

On Saturday, I’ll be at the Mom2Mom Plus Expo hosted by Girl Scouts. There will be tons of family fun – live animals, touch a truck, and more. Make sure to stop by and say hi if you’re there.

If I wasn’t at the expo, my top picks are the Rosie the Riveter Guinness World Record EventCardboard Challenge, Frankentoys, and Monster Smash.

Sunday’s top event is Trick or Treat on the River, but it looks like it might be a rainy afternoon. For an indoor option, check out Wondrous Strange at the Downtown Branch of AADL.

Friday and hopefully Saturday are great days for Fall Fun like Corn Mazes and Apple Orchards. It’s also time to think about getting your pumpkins.
