Happy Thursday! What’s everybody up to this weekend? Here’s our weekly list of fun stuff happening around the valley. (For all things Halloween, be sure to check out our full list of Halloween events.)

Tonight, there will be a screening of the film “Life, Animated,” at the Numerica PAC. The movie “is a remarkable coming of age story about a boy and his family who overcame great challenges by turning Disney animated movies into a language to express love, loss, kinship and brotherhood.”

Pybus hosts free live music events every Friday evening. This Friday, it’s local favorite Joe Guimond.

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

Leavenworth’s Oktoberfest celebration continues this weekend.

The Chelan Library is hosting its 8th Annual Halloween Carnival on Saturday.

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

Next Thursday, 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.

Take the family pumpkin patching.

A local mom is offering sewing classes for ages 8 to adult. Want your kids to learn to sew? Sign up now!

Looking ahead:

Next Friday, the Cashmere Library will host a “Teeny-Weeny Halloween Literacy Fair.”

Next Saturday 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.

Next Saturday, Oct. 27, it’s the Mansfield Community Church Harvest Festival.
