Events in Ann Arbor for the Weekend of October 16 – 18, 2015
One of the best things about living in Ann Arbor, Michigan is being able to enjoy all four of the wonderful seasons Michigan has to offer. We are in the middle of a great FALL season and the color of the leaves changing are so vibrant right now. I love just walking around and taking in as much nature as I can right now before the chill of winter arrives. The weather is going to be great this weekend. I hope you can take a break from work and or school and get out and enjoy some of the great things going on in and around Ann Arbor.

Pop X: The Ann Arbor Art Center will be sponsoring and hosting a pop-up art exhibit in several small pavilions that are set up at either the Liberty Plaza Park or the Ann Arbor Art Center (both of which are within walking distance from Corner House Apartments). The pavilions will house a variety of all kinds of art forms from visual, physical, dramatic, and interactive exhibits for 10 days running from October 15, 2015 – October 24, 2015. I’m looking forward to the Back to the Future II exhibit on 10/21 which will be an all day event focusing on the vision of the “future” (he actually travels from 1989 to October 21, 2015 in the movie). Who remembers “The Hoverboard ” ?!? For more information you can visit Ann Arbor Art Center website for more details.

Trick or Treat Down the River: The Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation will be hosting a Trick or Treat Paddle around Gallup Pond. Boaters are encouraged to wear costumes (no kids under 1 allowed) and candy will be handed out. It will be a great day to get out and enjoy some fresh air.
Its also a great time of year to get out to some neighboring apple orchards and indulge in some great cider and doughnuts. There are various haunted attractions running at night as well. I hope you get to have some fun this weekend. For a great resource to check out all the events in Ann Arbor go to the Ann Arbor Observer and see what else our great city has going on.
