Tacoma Kids Weekly - Week of June 26, 2008

Here's this week's list. It was more difficult to research considering all my bookmarks are on my laptop which is currently in the mail to Texas to be fixed. But I found a few things for you anyway. I doubt we'll have time to enjoy any of these events. The kids and I will be busy cleaning up the house, doing laundry, and packing. We leave next Saturday (May 31st) for a full week end Portland). So, you'll have just have to enjoy an event for us.

Today is Children's Day at the Japanese Garden in the Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle. Children's activities include kite making, puppetry, folktakes, music, and public tours. This event takes place between 11am and 3pm. Cost is $10 (includes 3 children under the age of 12) and $5 for seniors, disabled, and students. Tea for 2 children and their accompanying adult is $10 with reservations. Make a full day of it by visiting other areas in the arboretum. The Washington Park Arboretum is a great park full of beautiful trees and flowers labeled with their common and scientific names and country of origin. You can also follow a short trail to the north end where the park meets the Montlake Cut for a beautiful view. Picnic there or follow the marsh trail across the water for a neat adventure. At the south end of the park, just before you leave, there is a baseball diamond. Near there are some swings with the longest chains I've ever seen; makes for a great swing ride.

It's farmer's market season for Tacoma. Vist the Tacoma Farmer's Market downtown on Broadway, between 9th and 11th, from 9am to 2pm. Buy the freshesh produce and flowers, have lunch, visit craft vendors, and enjoy the music. Thursday's music is Jazz Strings. Park at the Tacoma Dome station for free and take the link rail down to the market. (hint: the kids will love the link rail ride)

The Puget Sound Antique Aircraft Club is doing a fly-in at the Museum of Flight. They will be at the museum ramp from 9am to 4pm. The museum's website suggests coming early to see the eye-catching landing. Seattle Child's website indicates that this is a free event (but won't include admission to the museum). Entrance into the museum is $14 for adults, $13 for seniors, $7.50 for children ages 5-17, and free for children under 5 if you wish to see the rest of the museum while you're there.

Petpalooza takes place today at Auburn's Game Farm Park. The event begins with a human/dog 3k walk (fee) and continues with pet-related stage events, canine disc championships, petting zoo, vendor booths, and more. The event has free admission with the exception of the walk.

Today and tomorrow is the Seattle Wing Luke Asian Museum's grand reopening ceremony. Ribbon cutting is at 10am with a multicultural drumming performance. Sunday at 11:30am is a cultural ceremony with lion and dragon dances. Timed tickets will be issued at the celebration. This event is free and open to the public.

The Tacoma Astronomical Society is hosting one of their free public viewing nights from 9am to 11:45pm at Pierce College near Fort Steilcoom. The event features indoor lectures and demonstrations regardless of the weather. On clean nights, they set up telescopes for observations of the moon, planets, stars, etc. Tonight's theme is The Solar System. There is no charge but donations are accepted. All ages and knowledge levels are invited.
