Kids vs. Dinosaurs at the Ann Arbor Summer Festival

After a long, hard week at the University of Michigan’s Kidsport program, my kids were ready to go home. They had played sports all morning, had lunch and then did basketball and dance for the afternoon sessions.

But I had been seeing the Ann Arbor Summer Festival set up outside of my office window and wanted to see what it was all about. So we stayed – under protest. We set up a blanket on the Power Center lawn and I ran across the street and grabbed a couple of hot dogs from the stand for Ray’s Red Hots.

Because we had aErth at Ann Arbor Summer Festivalrrived early, we had a prime start for the show to start. The production, from Australia’s Erth, was fantastic. The kids loved the realistic looking dinosaurs and the hostess was perfect.

My daughter was picked to come up and help pet the baby dinosaurs, and my son was chosen at the end to help with the T Rex – and ended up with his head in its mouth! Overall, the show was entertaining and a perfect end to the week for us.

After the show, we walked across the street to see the vendors. The kids got a snow cone and cotton candy and we walked over to the kid’s tent at Top of the Park. Unfortunately, they only had two small tables set up that were crowded with kids trying to make music shakers with paper plates. We passed on the activities there and ended up heading home.

The kids’ review?  They said if they knew the dinosaurs were that cool, they wouldn’t have said they wanted to go home.
