What’s happening? Your weekly events post

Still making your family’s weekend plans? We have a few suggestions for this weekend and beyond:

The 20th Annual Janice Franz Talent Show is back tonight and Friday. Proceeds from the shows this year will go to Wendy Skalisky, a local volunteer at the Wellness Place who is currently battling breast cancer.

The Wenatchee Wild are home at the TTC Friday and Saturday nights.

Live music and night skiing at Mission Ridge on Saturday.

On Saturday, dancers from Next Step Dance Studio will perform “A Night of Disney” at the Numerica PAC. (I’ll be in the audience trying not to weep with pride when a certain little blonde girl takes the stage in her Winnie the Pooh costume and pigtails…)

Explore the night sky with planetarium expert Dirk Horton at the Wenatchee River Institute this Saturday. (We wrote about the program on the blog last month.)

St. Joseph School’s Have-a-Heart Auction fundraiser is this Saturday night.
