Here’s our indoor trick or treating guide for Tacoma, Pierce County, South King, and Olympia
You’ve probably heard it’s supposed to rain on Wednesday. If you’re looking for indoor trick or treating around Tacoma, Pierce County, South King County, or Olympia, you’re in luck!
Options are organized by geographical location from north to south.
Note that I tried hard to stick to indoor options here. For trunk or treat events, community business district trick or treating, and other fun that might be worth getting just a little wet for, see our complete list that I’ve linked to at the bottom of this post! Most of these listings are trick or treating events, but a few are festivals/carnivals that looked like good indoor alternatives.
Disclaimer alert: We strive for 100% accuracy, but we have also provided links so you can verify details before you head out. Thanks for doing that!
UPDATED FOR 2018!
