Seeking some post-Christmas cheer while the kids are still out of school? Here’s the last of the local holiday events, albeit most are in the Tacoma area — but the worth the drive! If you’ve got something to add, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is it just me, or is “sprayground” just the coolest play on words ever?! WAY more fun than the regular ‘ol splash pads.
Well, Metro Parks Tacoma came out with a reminder last week to visit its ten spraygrounds before the water goes off on Oct. 1, 2023.
Here’s a closer look at all ten locations – plus some splash pad hygiene tips from the CDC.
Between virtual Selfies with Santa to NORAD’s age-old Santa Tracker, read on for a few fun sites that offer kiddo holiday home fun in 2022.
A joyful playground just 10 steps from the merchant tents, soft chewy cookies the size of your face, and a snazzy indoor market component are just some of the things that make the popular Puyallup Farmers’ Market extra family-friendly every Saturday from April to October at Pioneer Park.

This year, the kids and I walked across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge – something I’ve been wanting to do since we moved here!
After weeks of rain, we saw a moment of sunlight and dry skies. So with a skip, hop, and one possibly illegal parking spot later, we went for it!
