Happy Friday, Pierce County!
If you need some weekend inspiration, let me throw some ideas your way. Expo’s can be a great way to gather inspiration, and Pierce County has two happening this weekend – check out the Tacoma Home and Garden Show to see the Tacoma Dome in its element, or head out to Puyallup for fishing and boating ideas at the Washington Sportsmen’s Show.
Expos not your thing? Relax and take in live music at a local open mic night, try to escape from Fort Nisqually, or take your child out for a magical afternoon and a unicorn ride. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that soon enough, there will be an adult unicorn ride as well.
Have a great weekend!
P.S. Make sure to check out our online events calendar for even more great events this weekend!
