Good news, Cars fans! I confirmed this information this morning! Read on for the scoop on where to see McQueen’s best buddy. or…’ahem….a really good replica.
Update: We’ve had a little bit of convo. at the Facebook page about whether this event is worth the ticket entrance and the donation. Reader Valarie went to an appearance before and said it was very hard to see the big guy without making the donation, which she thought was steep.
Honestly? I think it totally depends on how big of fans your kiddos are, so I’m leaving it up to you! Be assured, I totally get that many families are on tight budgets, which is one of the reasons I try hard to list several free activities every week. Without further ado….
Guess who’s coming to Puyallup? It’s Tow-mater!
He’s making a one day only appearance during the Corvette and High Performance Meet as a benefit for the Puyallup food bank.
The show is open from 9:30 AM to 4PM Saturday. Admission is 10.00 for grown-ups and free for children 12 and under, accompanied by adults. Teens are 7.00 and seniors and military members are 9.00. For pictures with everybody’s favorite tow truck, you’re asked to make a 10.00 donation, which will go a long way towards helping the food bank provide for those in need.
You’ll find Tow Mater all day Saturday in the Expo Hall by the Gold Gate. Larry from the Corvette group let me know that you can expect long lines at 9:30 as enthusiasts will be lined up to get parts at the swap meet. So, you might want to go a bit later in the day.
If you’d like to see what kind of model of Tow Mater you’re getting, so you’ll know what to expect, or if you’d like to learn more about the work the food bank does, there is an article on the event here at the Puyallup Herald.
In other character news, you can catch Clifford this weekend in Puyallup, Kent, and Lynwood at the Children’s Bookshop. I’ll be sure to remind you in the weekend list.
