Bootiful: It’s not quite Halloween yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start celebrating. There’s a ton of events planned. We have a great, big list right here.

Seasonal: If you haven’t yet, this weekend would be a splendid time to visit a pumpkin patch or corn maze. Check out our extensive list here.

Dance: The Everett Music Initiative is throwing a Halloween party at Kroaker’s on Rucker on Saturday night. DJ Action Jackson will be kicking the night off spinning some classic throwback dance tracks and Fly Moon Royalty will be headlining the show. Tickets are $10 at the door and costumes are welcome. The party starts at 9 p.m. and is 21 and over. Get more info here.

Knock, knock: Grandma, what big eyes you have!

Grandma might like it, but it’s intended for school-age children. Donations accepted for Sarvey Wildlife Care Center. Hmmm, do they have any wolves there?
