I’m working on several posts today, but I wanted to start with a preview of one of this weekend’s best bets.
It’s the Tree Festival at Wright Park in Tacoma.It’s a free event this Saturday with art projects, scavenger hunts, and more. Plus, kids can get outfitted in helmets and harnesses and safely climb up into the branches of some of the park’s beautiful trees. Trained arborists will be supervising and can also answer your tree care questions.
While you’re there, you can check out the new playground and stop by the conservatory. The pumpkins won’t arrive until the 18th, but it’s always a fun stop anyway-see if you can feed the fish. You can read more in my post about an outing to the Wright Park Conservatory. The new playground is also a winner, and the park itself is just beautiful this time of year.
If you can’t wait, you can head there today for story time. Read about that and more options in What Sounds Fun This Week.
Disclosure: As you can see, my kids are often in trees without helmets or harnesses. They don’t go very high, though. SFM takes no responsibility for broken limbs (trees or otherwise) or any other injury that happens as a result of your reading this site. I will feel bad, though, so do be careful. 🙂
