Last minute shopping trips, late nights wrapping presents, baking yummy treats, meeting up with family and friends, and getting ready for whatever this holiday season holds for you! Check out what is happening in the Puyallup community this week. Some of these events might help ease the load you carry during the holiday season.
If you have not made it to The North Pole at the Fair, this is your last week to do so. Check out Santa’s office, library, Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen, Santa’s workshop, and Santa’s media den. These events will get your kids excited to leave a treat for Santa on Christmas even. You can also explore the Elf Village with a variety of interactive activities. If they are enjoying the activities at the fair, take it to the next level and check out the live reindeer at Watson’s Greenhouse in Puyallup. Your kids will not forget these Christmas experiences. Will your kiddos be able to hear Santa on the rooftop this year? Will you be tracking Santa as he makes his way around the world?

With the rush of the holiday season, we hope that you enjoy time with loved ones. The smell of fireplaces, apple cider, hot chocolate, Christmas trees, the sound of soft and cherry classic holiday tunes in as background music, driving past lights that are hanging from houses, impressive tree decorations, the race from the car to the door to escape the chilly weather. All of these things remind me of Christmas. Whether you are staying local or traveling afar, we hope you have a very Merry Chrismas and joyous holiday season.
