Summer Game Spectacular!

Saturday July 15, 2017: 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm -- Veterans Memorial Park, 350 N Maple Rd

This event is intended for all ages

Come one, come all, to the first ever splendiferously staggering, outdoor, earn-a-million-points, Summer Game Spectacular!

Get outside and enjoy the summer with us in one of Ann Arbor’s greatest parks!

Featuring the high-flying circus The Aviary, AADL’s amazing outdoor game collection, a metal detector testing ground, face painting, food trucks, and more, this slam-bang event will knock your socks off no matter your age!

We'll be at the baseball field and the softball field closest to the dirt parking lot off of Maple, next to the Skate Park. We'll see you there!

This looks like a lot of fun.

This looks like a lot of fun. It should be splashed all over the front of the summer game page! I had to kind of hunt to find this on the website after seeing a brief mention of it on Twitter.

A ton?

A ton of points? So 2000? :^)

Where will it be at Vets? I suppose it will be obvious when we arrive but I LIKE TO BE PREPARED. What if it's on the field where my son broke his arm sliding into 2nd base? Will we all have flashbacks?? :^)

By the way, the Smithsonian Folklife Festival is focused on circuses this year, so "the high-flying circus The Aviary" is in line with that!

Summer Spectacular Scoresweeper Badge

So I earned all four badges to get the overall badge, but it didn't assign me the 500 points and it says I didn't earn the badge, even if it shows I have all the badges needed to earn the badge. ????

Thanks! (I can't attached a photo but have a screen grab.)


Oops!

Right after I did this comment, it said I got the points. HA! USUALLY779


Veterans Memorial Park Was Great!

That was a great event! A lot of families went out to "Veterans Memorial Park," to play and participate on various games and other activities provided by AADL; while at the same time, enjoying the food, drinks and collecting codes for the online game. :)


Great Time

Thanks AADL. We had lots of fun at the Summer Game Spectacular.

thanks to all the library staff that put this event together and who helped it run smoothly today. your efforts were greatly appreciated. :)


This was so much fun and I

This was so much fun and I loved the opportunity to test out some of the lawn games I hadn't heard of, or even know you had! We've got plans to check out a bunch of them soon. We also appreciated the opportunity to see the A2 Aviary up close...they're so impressive! Great fun all around.


It was fun. Well worth it.
