#MIWeekend – April 7-9: Lakes and Fools

This week’s surprise snowstorm is supposed to give way to spring-like weather across the state this weekend, with sunny skies across the state on Saturday and temperatures reaching from the mid-60s in the Upper Peninsula to nearly 70 in the southern part of the Lower Peninsula on Sunday. So make the most of it, whether working in your garden, visiting a local lake or taking part in a community event. The Greater West Bloomfield Historical Society hosts an exhibit called Lake Life: History of Our Local Lakes free of charge Saturday. And on Sunday, Ann Arbor hosts the annual Festifools hour-long celebration of papier-mâché puppets — don’t be late!

Our representatives are hosting a large number of events around the state where you can talk about recent legislative proposals, learn about the state budget or give your ideas about how to make Michigan a better place to live. Events in the coming week include:
