Need something to do today? You know it’s summer when the fun keeps going all weekend long!
Here are some ideas for family fun in Puyallup, Gig Harbor, Tacoma, Olympia, and beyond! Let me know about anything fun I missed, won’t you? Thanks!
Slug Fest at Northwest Trek weekend of all things slug, including slug races, slug tattoos, a slug photo booth, and more. Included with admission. Also Sunday. Trek is a fun adventure, but admission is spendy. Consider a membership if you’d go two or more times. One can be added to an existing zoo membership.
Half-Off Admission to Wild Waves with a donation of new clothing for Foster Kids. Each member of your party needs a donation for the discount. Another option is to buy discounted tickets online for 14.99 through June. The current regular admission price is 19.99. One note for thrill seekers-some slides have been removed while they make room for new ones (scheduled to open in July).
Water’s Extreme Weekend at the Harbor History Museum 1-4PM Free admission for kids 17 and under and special run related to the current, “Water’s Extreme Journey,” exhibit
Crafts From the Past at Fort Nisqually Local artisans demonstrate different crafts each weekend through September 3rd. Included with admission. I think demos. will probably only interest older children, but kids of most ages enjoy exploring the fort. Sunday only this weekend, due to the cooking event on Saturday. It’s plant pressing today. Included with admission
Gig Harbor Sunday Farmer’s Market at Skansie Brothers Park Take a Trolly? The STAR Center in S Tacoma also has their Sunday market now (it’s next to the new playground and sprayground).
Historic Fort Steilacoom is now open for Sunday tours 1-4PM through Labor Day Talk on the fort during the Civil War at 2PM today
If you’ve been super busy like we have, you might have missed the roll out of this year’s great, big South Sound Summer Guide! It’s all your favorite things for summer with the kids in one, great place!
I also have a great list of summer camps in the menu bar, a round up of savings on family fun on the deal page, and much, much more! It’s a lot to take in-you might want to become a subscriber and tackle a little bit a day. We have lots of ways to subscribe via those cute buttons at the top, but I recommend the daily emails!
