Arbor Annie’s Weekend Roundup – October 5-7

This weekend is shaping up to be a washout. Fortunately there are some good indoor activities on the schedule. Although we’re still hoping to make it to a corn maze.

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

With a rainy weekend forecast, there are several great indoor activities this wekeend.

Ypsilanti is starting to get ready for ypsiGLOW with activities scheduled during First Fridays Ypsilanti and an ypsiGLOW Workshop at the Michigan Avenue Ypsilanti Library.

Head to Ann Arbor for U-M Homecoming Celebration at UMMA & Drop-In Letterpress Printing. You can also join the Kelsey Museum’s Saturday Sampler Tour: Read & Look “G is for Gladiator”. Sunday Michigan Theater kicks off their Not Just for Kids season with Nugget & Fang.

Movies are always a great indoor activity, Quality 16’s free morning movie this weekend is The Greatest Showman. I’d love to go see it, but I don’t think it works with our schedule.

When planning your weekend, remember that UM has a home game on Saturday at noon.

We’re hoping to head to a corn maze one day this weekend. With a changing forecast, we’ve already changed our plans a couple of times.

If the weather holds, head to Dexter’s Apple Daze or an orchard to pick apples.

    Ann Arbor Free Morning Movies at Quality 16 - Fall 2018

    The most tween-friendly big release this weekend is Venom. Venom is part of the Spiderman Universe, although this film is not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It is on our list to see, but it might take us a few weeks to fit it in our schedule.

    Other family friendly movies at the theater are SmallfootHouse with a Clock in Its Walls, and Little Women.

    Christopher Robin is still playing in theaters. While we all enjoyed it, the movie is better for adults and older kids than younger kids.
