Here’s the Friday preview: Bainbridge edition for March 29. Feel free to give your own events a plug in the comment section below. Above, a pair of lambs and their mother enjoy some sunshine Tuesday in a field off Madison Avenue NE. (Meegan Reid photo)
Weather: We don’t want to jinx it, but the National Weather Service is predicting a very pleasant weekend. Sunshine and highs in the 60s are expected today, Saturday and Sunday.
Sports: It will be a quiet weekend for the Spartans. The boys soccer team defends its home turf at 6 p.m. tonight against Chief Sealth. And that’s about it.
- The park district will hold egg hunts for all ages and interests this weekend. The Bainbridge Island Teen Center puts a new spin on the tradition tonight with a Flashlight Egg Hunt. Egg hunts will be held at Strawberry Hill Park and the Aquatic Center on Saturday. A geocaching egg hunt will be open all weekend at parks around the island. See details on all the park district hunts here (PDF).
- Families can also stop by KiDiMu Saturday for an egg hunt (and hide). The KiDiMu hunt runs from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. (The museum is closed Sunday for the holiday).
- The Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial will hold a “Service and Community” work party from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. Participants are asked to wear appropriate work clothes and bring any landscaping tools they might have available. Origami lessons will be offered for children. The park is located at 4192 Eagle Harbor Drive.
