Please include Tacoma Winterfest in your weekend itinerary

If you wanted to pick a weekend to invite out of town guests to visit Tacoma this would be a great one. There are so many fun things happening - enough to fill your whole weekend! Check out this list I was able to come up with in just a few short minutes:

Tacoma Winterfest at Foss Waterway Seaport

Seas 'N Greetings Decorated Boat Competition at Foss Harbor Marina, Delin Docks and Dock Street Marina

Dickens Festival Stadium District

Snowbound Tacoma Art Museum

For people in the middle of a recession we sure know how to party!

You know where I'll be. Come see me at Tacoma Winterfest. The lighted boat parade will pass our esplanade around 5:30 pm on Saturday. We'll have a great vantage point. Here's the entertainment I've arranged for you:
