Some days there are just almost too many fun outings for your South Sound family! Today is one of them, but I wanted to at least highlight a few of your choices!
Story time at the Job Carr Museum-This tiny but fun museum in Old Town Tacoma hosts special story and craft times during the summer. It’s a quilting theme today. Admission is pay-as-you-will. Grown ups may want to return in the evening for the third in a series of walking tours. Learn about Tacoma in the 19th Century during today’s walk. Story times are prefect for ages 3-8 and go from 1-2PM.
Speaking of walks, The Walk Tacoma event is just for kids today. It starts at the Children’s museum, and it’s a kid friendly 1.8 miles, and there will be special goodies for the kids, and maybe a special guest, too! You can read more about it here. It starts at the museum at 12, and it’s free.
Wednesday always means big fun for kids in Auburn. Today’s Kids’ SummerStage performer is Louie Foxx, who’s great. He’s sort of a magician/comedian/stunt guy rolled into one. He performs in Les Gove Park at 12. This is the big park by the sprayground. The little White River Valley Museum right there is also worth a visit. Do note this place will be JAM packed. If you don’t like crowds, this is not the one for you.
There is a low tide event at Owen Beach today. Meet at 10:30 to look for creatures revealed by low tide.
Another great story time is at the Seymour Conservatory at Wright Park at 11AM. These are nature themed stories followed by a science project or simple craft. These are perfect for preschoolers-young primary age children. The conservatory is free, though a 3.00 donation is suggested. The conservatory is above the playground/sprayground in Wright Park. You might want to plan on some play or splashing after.
There are really great library events in Gig Harbor, Tacoma, and Enumclaw today. You can check those out in the calendar. Hint: Be sure to use the tools at the bottom to continue to the next page-the fun just keeps on going today!
