Looking for something fun to do? Read on for a few suggestions. And be sure to check back here next week for our annual list of all-things Halloween!

This Friday and Saturday, it’s the Icicle Creek Family Film Festival, a weekend of workshops, films and fun for the whole family.

The Wenatchee Wild are home at the Town Toyota Center on Friday.

The second annual TEAMS Carnival is this Saturday. From TEAMS: “Families please join us for a day of fun, games, entertainment and delicious food, raffles, cake walk (with hidden veggies) and special visitors from our community helping us share information about sustainable practices. All funds raised will go to help TEAMS Early Learning Center provide quality education for children, teachers and parents.”

This Saturday, join the Land Trust at Saddle Rock Trailhead for the last of this season’s kid-focused hikes. The theme for this hike will be Wildlife Tracking.

Also Saturday, it’s the Third Annual Methow Park Festival.

Looking ahead:

Next Saturday, Oct. 20, there will be a free art class for kids at the Wenatchee Valley Museum.

On Oct. 25, stop by Tousled Salon in downtown Wenatchee for an open house. There’ll be wine and treats, plus an opportunity to win a fabulous Dyson hair dryer. If you are looking for a new hair salon, GO to this! I promise you will love Tousled. The ladies who work there are friendly and do beautiful work, and the space itself is gorgeous — light-filled, great view of downtown, and recently renovated.

Saturday, Oct. 27 is Make A Difference Day, and Wenatchee goes BIG for this one every year. Want to get involved? Just go online, find a project that speaks to you, and volunteer to help. Our friends at Wenatchee Pediatric Dentistry will be collecting donations for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
