Family Fun in Northville, Michigan

Are you looking for something to do this weekend with the whole family?

It is going to be a beautiful weekend in Northville, Michigan. The temperatures will be in the low 70s with partly cloudy skies. This is the perfect weekend to pick pumpkins, drink apple cider, eat donuts and maybe even head to a corn maze after dark.

Sometimes it can be hard to find events that are family friendly and fun for all. We are here to share with you that Northville, Michigan has a number of fantastic events planned for you and your family this weekend. According to the Northville Patch, there are 4 events happening this weekend in Northville.

Get your planners out and let's start planning.

  1. Corn Maze at the Maybury Farm

Although we have shared about the Maybury Farm Corn Maze before, we wanted to highlight a few more things. The farm has a 12 acre maze that is hiding 8 wooden animals. If you find all 8 wooden animals, you have a chance to win a Meijer gift card. 

The ticket you purchase includes your wagon ride to the corn maze, admission to play at the farm-themed playground, and visit with all the animals. This is a perfect event for anyone with young children.

What we didn't share last time is that the corn maze continues after dark. Fridays and Saturdays they are open until 10 pm and Sunday's hours have been extended to 8 pm. 

Another great part is that all of the proceeds from the Corn Maze go to feed the animals during the winter. 

Pumpkins are half-off this weekend, too. If you're looking for fall family fun, the Maybury Farm in Northville, Michigan has it for you.

  1. Fall Fair Artisan Market 

If you are looking for some individuality in your decor, this fair will have it all: furniture, fiber art, jewelry, photography, sculptures and more. Everything has been handcrafted by 75 artists and crafters from around the country. Don't worry. They will have holiday items as well. The fair will be held at the Northville Community Center at 303 West Main Street on October 11 through the 13th.

  1. Support the High School Rowing Club

This weekend in rain or shine, the Northville High School rowing club will be rowing from Detroit to Mackinac Island. Thankfully, it looks like they've picked a beautiful weekend to do it. The team is hoping to raise money for a new boat. 

  1. Northville Township Fire Department

Does your child love fire trucks? This Saturday is the perfect time to visit the Northville Township Fire Department. The fire department is having an open house to have fun and educate everyone who attends on fire safety. There will be activities for the whole family including:

Help with Remodeling and Renovating Your Home

by The Jamey Kramer Group
Help with Home Remodeling and Renovating Your Home

Are you hoping to save money by remodeling yourself?

Are you wondering what remodeling jobs will add value to your home?

There is good news in Novi, Michigan: the summer-like temperatures are here to stay at least for the weekend. While we may be enjoying the occasional fall shower, temperatures will be staying in the high 70s. This weekend will be the perfect weekend to head out to the Novi Home Remodeling Show. 

Both remodeling and renovating have the potential to add value to your home. Today, we want to share with you some of the top places to renovate or remodel that will get you the return on your investment. With that knowledge you can head into the Novi Home Remodeling Show ready to learn how.

Remodeling and Renovating 

Last month, we shared the article, Do Renovations Increase the Value of Your Home?, that questioned whether or not renovations actually increase the value of your home. What we learned is that renovating does work as long as it is in the right place. 

The biggest winners when it comes to return on your investment are outside your home. According to the Cost vs. Value report by Remodeling Magazine, the top four places to receive a return on your investment are,

  • Entry Door Replacement
  • Fiber Cement Siding
  • Wood Deck Addition
  • Garage Door Replacement

The report just proved what realtors have been saying for a while, curb appeal goes a long way. First impressions are critical, especially when you are considering selling your home. 

The fifth highest remodeling job was minor kitchen remodeling. That's great news, because the cost to renovate isn't going to break the bank. The kind of remodeling jobs we are talking about here are changing out counter tops, adding new appliances and replacing the cabinet fronts. 

The last couple of remodeling jobs that are worth taking notice are finishing off the basement and adding an attic bedroom. These two will cost more than the previous jobs, but having that extra space may be what the buyers need to make that offer. 

The Novi Home Remodeling Show

This weekend is the perfect time to start researching any remodeling jobs that you may be considering. Here is what the Novi Patch reported on the Novi Home Remodeling Show,

"Looking to update your home? Anything and everything you need to remodel and design your home can be found under one roof at the Novi Home Remodeling Show! Browse exhibits in kitchen and bath interiors, windows and doors, flooring products, furniture, cabinetry and much more!"

The Novi Home Remodeling Show is sponsored by the Home Builder Association of Southeastern Michigan and is being held all weekend at the Suburban Collection Showplace. 

Adding space, sprucing up, and updating can all add value to your home making it a perfect opportunity to sell. If you need any assistance, please call our office at 248-348-7200. Have a wonderful weekend and we'll see you in Novi, Michigan this weekend.

Another fun activity is finding 8 animals. Once all 8 are found, you can head back for cider and donuts. Then you can be entered to win a Meijer gift card. While you are enjoying your cider and donuts, you and the kids can head out to the playground and visit the animals. The hours of operation are:

Friday: 6 pm-10 pm

Saturday: 1 pm-10 pm

Sunday: 1 pm-7 pm

Remember the last wagon of the day leaves 1 hour before closing time. This maze was created to raise money to feed the animals during the winter. The cost of admission for adults is $7 and kids under 9 are $6. Maybury Farm is located at 50165 Eight Mile in Northville.

Kidpreneur Video Production Workshop 

Here is a great event if your kid is interested in making movies. According to the Northville Patch,

"This is part of the Kidpreneur Video Production Series workshop. In this workshop, kids will learn how to use Microsoft Live MovieMaker to make a 30sec introduction video with titles, audio and music."

This class is for kids 10-14 years old. Classes and workshops are held at 235 E Main Street, Suite #104 in Northville.  Kids must bring their own laptop. If you are already a member then the workshop is free. For non members, the charge is $25. 

This workshop focuses on teaching kids how to promote their business by using a 30 second video. 

Sundaes on Sunday

I know I love ice cream, especially when it's free. This Sunday, the Northville District Library is hosting an event called, "Friends of the Library". Bring your friends, family, or anyone you can find even if they are not a member because this event is open to everyone. 

If you would like to become a member of the library, Sunday is the perfect time to do it. You'll also discover the upcoming events that the library has to offer. This Sunday's event will be from 1 pm-4 pm.
