Happy Thursday! What’s everybody up to this Spring Break? We found lots of fun things happening locally:
On Friday, gather up a group of friends for Trivia Night at the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center.
Also Friday, it’s Family Game Night at Pybus Public Market.
The Smallwood’s Harvest Easter Egg Hunt is happening on Saturday at 1 p.m.
The Saddlerock Evangelical Presbyterian Church Easter Egg Hunt is also on Saturday
Many of our favorite foothills hiking and biking trails open for the season this Saturday. (While the trails typically open on April 1, I received this note from the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust: “The Wenatchee Foothills trail system will be open this Saturday morning, March 31st. The Land Trust, Chelan Co. PUD, and the state Dept. of Fish & Wildlife have agreed to open the trails a day early to give people a chance to enjoy a full weekend with the trails available. As always, please give wildlife a wide berth, keep dogs leashed, and avoid muddy trails. The Land Trust will have volunteer greeters out at Sage Hills, Balsamroot, and Horse Lake Reserve trailheads, handing out fruit bars and trail information. Give them a big smile when you see them!”)
On Easter Sunday, Wapato Point Cellars in Manson will host a special dinner and kids’ egg hunt. (And a “cork hunt” for adults!)
