At 10 N. Mission St. here in Wenatchee, some local artists have created orangutan, a shared artists’ studios with storefront window display.

Linda Holmes-Cook | Dahlia showtime in North Central Washington

After a season of dahlia shows all over Washington, North Central Washington finally gets to play host. We will be welcoming some of the top dahlia growers in the Northwest, as they head east to participate in the final show of the season, right here in Wenatchee.

In an ironic twist, while the dahlias were experiencing a case of arrested development, the goathead, purslane, morning glory, chickweed and sperge ...

Carin Smith | Update on Wenatchee’s public off-leash dog park

I’m the chair of a local group called FIDO (Friends Improving Dog Opportunities) that is working to create a network of public, no-fee off-leash areas in the Wenatchee Valley. We have made great progress over the summer towards our goal of creating the first such park. It will be part of the Hale Park property, which is located south of Pybus Public Market along the Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail.

Katie Covey | 5 Things to Love About Living in Wenatchee

My name is Katie Covey, and I am currently a senior at Washington State University.
