Looking for things to do though, here's the weekend events round-up for your planning pleasure!
Friday, June 29:
Kids in grades K-5 can make their own Trash Tanks at Ann Arbor District Library (2359 Oak Valley Dr., Ann Arbor) at 2:00 p.m. This free event lets kids better understand what happens to what we put in the landfills. (I suggest this program after the kids do a thorough room cleaning!) Then they will make a mini trash tank to find out!
Check out the Kidszone with RobinSongs at the Ann Arbor Summer Festival Top of the Park 5:00-8:00 p.m. They will also enjoy the Erth's Dinosaur Petting Zoo at 5:00 and 7:00 p.m.
