What’s happening? Your weekly events post

Looking for something fun to do? We have a few suggestions for this weekend and beyond:

Are you the parent of a teenager or a soon-to-be teen? Check out a screening of the film “Screenagers” at the Numerica PAC TONIGHT. The movie explores raising teenagers in an age of social media, video games and internet addiction.

Tomorrow is Healthy Kids Day at the Wenatchee Valley YMCA. There will be a rock wall, bouncy houses, family Zumba and swimming. This one is free to everybody — you don’t have to be a Y member. Sounds fun!

On Friday night at the Numerica PAC, it’s the Trails in Motion Film Festival, featuring trail running and ultra running films.

On Saturday, it’s A Different Kind of Story Time at the museum. This week the story is “Enzo the Wonderfish” read by Christy Shearer.
