Here are your best bets for affordable fun for kids and the family in the South Puget Sound this weekend. As you might guess, there are lots of holiday events.
Are you seeing SFM on Facebook? I had to relaunch that page on the 24th of November. Like the new page so you don’t miss out! New here? I’d love to have you join our fb page, or subscribe to my handy emails or RSS feed via the handy buttons on the left.

Ongoing Holiday Events
Visit with Santa at the Old Cannery in Sumner. Santa is available between 11-4 on weekends through December. Free sleigh rides are available the weekend of the 11th-12th and the weekend of the 18th-19th. Did you find this site looking for Old Cannery info? I have scoop just for the South Sound every day! I hope you’ll come back!
Zoolights at Pt.Defiance. Half off for members; otherwise it’s 7.88 or save a buck by purchasing in advance at Bartell drugs. Kids under 2 are free. There is also a value deal that will get you a Zoolights admission and half off a general admission to come another time.
Know something great I missed? Don’t see your town? Let me know! Did you have a crazy, busy week? Make sure to read my post on how to get your child mail from the North Pole. I’ve also got a mini guide on how to cut your own tree from the National Forest, or for something different check out Monday’s museum post (it’s a great one)! Just scroll down one post to see if Santa will be riding a fire truck through your neighborhood.
