Happy Friday! If you’re looking for something fun to do, read on for our big list of local events. (And don’t forget to set your clocks back one hour before heading to bed Saturday night!)

This afternoon, the Wenatchee Public Library is hosting a free screening of “A Wrinkle in Time.”

Tonight, it’s the Wenatchee First Friday Art Walk. If you’ve never been out for one of these walks, you should try it. Galleries, cafes and stores all over town participate, hosting featured artists and offering refreshments and specials. (Admission is free all day at the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center.)

Pybus Public Market hosts free live music events every Friday evening. This Friday, it’s the Just-Us band playing blues, classic rock and pop.

The pre-ski season “Pray For Snow” party is happening Saturday night in the parking lot behind Arlberg Sports. This one is 21 and over, so ditch the kids, hit up the beer garden and enjoy live music by three bands.

Another Saturday night date idea: The Wenatchee Valley Symphony Orchestra performs “Beethoven and Borodin” at the Numerica PAC.
