Puyallup is buzzing with events this week. With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, don’t forget to make time to participate in traditions that make this time of year so memorable. From Santa pictures to wrapping gifts to giving back to those less fortunate, this time of year brings families and the community together. Were you able to make the Christmas parade downtown last Saturday? We hope you enjoyed it! Did you get into the Christmas spirit at the Victorian Country Christmas at the fair? If not, there are still plenty of opportunities in the community to get you in the Christmas spirit.
