Easter egg huts, book sale, an open house and more

Events in Chelan this weekend


CHELAN - After a brief slumber through the bitter winter months the Chelan Valley is about to be re-energized with a few events in addition to the Chelan Earth Day Fair this weekend.

• Manson Parks East Egg Hunt 

The Manson Easter Egg Hunt will take place this Saturday at 10 a.m. for ages 0-3 at Singleton Park, 10:10 a.m. for ages 4-6 at Singleton Park Playground and 10:45 a.m. for ages 7 and above at Manson Bay Park. 

“We’re still working on stuffing the eggs with candy, but we are expecting to have a couple thousand eggs and 15 golden eggs that will be hidden for the older group,” Manson Parks Director Robin Pittman said. “Those will have certificates with a prize number in them and then they can come and exchange that for its corresponding prize.
