Arbor Annie’s Weekend Roundup – September 28-30

Weekend highlights are fundraising runs, Mom2Mom sales, fall activities, and more. Getting around town will be a bit easier with no home game, but there is construction.

Arbor Annie's Weekend Picks - September 28-30

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra kicked off their KinderConcert Series at AADL this morning. They are headed to Dexter and Chelsea on Saturday and Ypsilanti on Monday.

It’s a weekend for charity fundraisers with Run Tough for Chad ToughSt. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer, and First Steps Trike-a-Thon Fall Festival on Saturday and Goldfish Swim Fundraiser for Girl Scouts on Sunday.

Does your family love basketball? The Detroit Pistons are holding an Open Practice on Saturday afternoon. Arrive early and your child may have a chance to take a shot on the court.

You can revamp your child’s wardrobe for the coming winter months at a Mom2Mom Sale. Saturday is the St Paul School Mom2Mom Sale, the HVPOM Mom2Mom Sale, and the Family to Family Resale at It’s a Small World Daycare.

Ann Arbor Mom2Mom Sales Fall 2018

Saturday night is the Astronomy Day Star Party at LSNC. Hopefully the weather will cooperate for great viewing.

Sunday’s top event is the Cars & Bikes on Campus/Free College Day at WCC.

However, my daughter’s top pick for the weekend is Sunday’s All-Ages Mario Kart 8 DELUXE Tournament. She loves Mario Kart and was very excited to see it in AADL’s JUMP program guide she brought home from school.

Saline celebrates Oktoberfest this weekend. It is a family-friendly event with a special Kinderplatz section of kids activities.

With temperatures in the 60s, it’s a good time to celebrate fall at an apple orchard. We went apple picking two weeks ago and are slowly working our way through our apples.

Ann Arbor Outdoor Activities - Ann Arbor Orchards & Cider Mills

With it getting dark earlier in the evening, a Corn Maze is a great choice – or go in the daytime if the kids get scared.

With no home football game the I-94 construction project resumes this weekend. This weekend’s construction is actually on US-23 and the ramps to I-94. Get the details in our Construction Report.

    Movies

    The Free Fall Movies at Quality 16 continue this weekend. This weekend’s movie is Paddington 2.

    Ann Arbor Free Morning Movies at Quality 16 - Fall 2018

    Smallfoot opens this weekendWe haven’t seen this animated PG movie which puts a new spin on the concept of BigfootAlso new in theaters is Little Women, which gives a present day twist to Louisa May Alcott’s classic. The House with a Clock in Its Walls opened last weekend, and is a great pre-Halloween movie. We haven’t seen it, so we don’t have a review to share.

    We saw Christopher Robin last month. While we all enjoyed it, the movie is better for adults and older kids than younger kids.
