To do this weekend: Sausage Fest and fall fun

All the brats you can eat: The ever-popular Everett Sausage Festival runs Friday through Sunday at the Perpetual Help Church Grounds, 2619 Cedar Ave. It’s a family-oriented festival with a traditional Bavarian dinner and food booths, children’s games, bingo, a carnival and music. See our story for details.

Get ready to rumble: For the first time in eight years, World Wrestling Entertainment is bringing its pile-driving back to Everett. The WWE will host the Raw World Tour at Comcast Arena on Friday night at 7:30. Tickets are available, ranging from $17 to $97. More at www.comcastarenaeverett.com.

Watch the Tips: After the wrestlers clear out, it’s time for some real hard-hitting action. The Everett Silvertips play the Tri-City Americans at 5 p.m. Sunday. See the Tips’ website for the full schedule.

Go on a hay ride: It’s harvest party time Saturday in Marysville. There will be hay rides, a petting zoo, pumpkin painting, prizes, a bouncy house and train rides from noon to 4 p.m. at Schaefer-Shipman Funeral Home, 804 State Ave. Call 360-659-3711 for more information.
