Arbor Annie’s Weekend Picks

Our family calendar is very full this weekend, but it is also a busy weekend with lots of events around town. Remember that Michigan has a noon home game and plan your travels around town accordingly.

Kick off the weekend with Girl Power Day with Michigan Soccer at UM Soccer Stadium Friday night.

Saturday starts early with the 6th Annual RunTough for ChadTough.

ChadTough Foundation

Then, Saturday afternoon is the Ann Arbor Family Expo. Stop in and visit local businesses and organizations that serve families.

This weekend will be a bit cooler if you want to visit an apple orchard or cider mill. Just watch out for the rain. Also, be sure to check the status of the orchard – Wasem is closed for u-pick this weekend.

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.
