    Women look through hundreds of wedding dresses at the Lynnwood/Everett Wedding Expo at Comcast Arena in January. The annual event has moved to this weekend.

Summer ends this weekend, but there's still plenty going on. Here are some things to do:
Planning a wedding? Don't miss the Lynnwood/Everett Wedding Expo this weekend at Comcast Arena. There will be more than 1,000 gowns marked down between 20 percent and 70 percent, along with tips and trends in food, fashion, jewelry and decorations. The expo runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $15. Read about it in our story here.
Harvest festival: Stanwood's Harvest Jubilee on Saturday includes music, a juried art show, sustainable agriculture talks, farm tours and a $5 pancake breakfast. The breakfast is at 8, and events run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Country Store parking lot and other locations; maps at
