Need something great to do this weekend? Send summer off with a blast with our weekend list of awesome free events for kids and families in Tacoma, Olympia, and everywhere in between.
We have an awesome list just like this every Friday, just for South Sound families, and tons of other fun ideas every other day of the week!
The last true low tide of the summer is this morning around 11:30. Find a beach near you to explore!
Kids’ Club at Michael’s Craft Stores It’s a bookmark from 10AM-12 2.00 per half hour session
South King County
Open hours at Mary Olson Farm in Auburn Drop in and visited the preserved farm in the summer. Donations welcome. Farmhouse tours at 1 and 3. This is a quieter outing but really neat for kids-reader Becca said her family ended up with a private tour last weekend! Last weekend!
Visit the HCC Mast Center at Redondo Touch tanks with sea critters free and open to the public Saturdays from 10AM-2
Feeding Frenzy at Northwest Trek Special themed activities included with admission. Admission is pricey, but it does include your tram ride, and is a full day of fun (Did your kids get passes from a summer reading program?). You may also add a Trek membership to an existing zoo membership-worth it if you’d go more than twice a year.
Go Green Games at Meridian Habitat Park bounce houses, garbage truck demonstrations, games, and mascots including Rhubarb and Blitz. 1-4 PM FREE
Update-we’re hearing that the Go Green Games have been canceled due to the windstorm.
Tacoma/South Tacoma/ Parkland
