Happy Thursday! As always, we’ve put together a list of local happenings this weekend and beyond:
The second annual Solstice Run happens TONIGHT! From Run Wenatchee: “This unique run, which begins and ends at Pybus Market, takes participants by each of Brewers Row’s four craft breweries — Badger Mountain Brewery, 509 Bierwerks, Columbia Valley Brewery and Wenatchee Valley Brewery. Once back at Pybus, there is a post-race party to celebrate the Solstice, with each brewery pouring their beers, along with live music and giveaways every hour. This family friendly event also includes non-alcoholic beverages and snacks.”
The AppleSox are home this Saturday and Sunday.
