Taste of Tacoma at Pt.Defiance New this year is Rock the Bowl from Metro Parks, featuring a zip line, climbing wall and more. Admission to the event is free. There is a cost for food items and rock the bowl activities, though there will also be free, live entertainment on stage. You are encouraged to park at TCC and take the shuttle. This is a busy event. I wouldn’t navigate it with a stroller, but I’m chicken like that….feel free to leave your Taste Tips in the comments!
Shrine Circus at the Puyallup Fairgrounds It seems like there are usually coupons for free kids’ admission at local retailers, but so far no luck in finding any for this circus. Maybe it’s a different circus that does that? I do have a hot top from fb reader, Denise, who says to go ahead and buy yours at the gate. If you buy online, you have to choose will-call, and there will be an extra fee.
Wings and Wheels at the Tacoma Narrows Airport Air and car show at the airport in Gig Harbor. Displays, fly-overs, entertainment, beer garden. Admission is 12.00 for adults/5.00 for kids. Only those who purchase online in advance will be able to park on site. Day-of purchasers should ride the shuttle from Uptown. There are also bomber rides available if you have several hundred spare dollars.
