Dear Tacoma, it's cold out there and we know those 6 hours a day of sunlight aren't really much motivation to pull your toes out from under your blanket and go for a run.
This is why we ask only that you join us in one short sprint, before partying the night away. "Tacoma's Last Mile" Fun Run is a quick mile long loop around Tacoma's Theater District. (Sponsored by Metro Parks Tacoma) Register online and pick up your tiger mask and race number at Metro Parks headquarters.

Lighting Up Your New YearWe're lighting up Broadway this New Year's Eve with dream trees, paper lanterns, and a fire-powered clock with a big surprise at the midnight hour.

First round, anyway.

Thank you to everyone who contributed photos!

Now that everyone has had a chance to get some sleep, we'd like to know what you thought.
What was your favorite thing?
What would you like to see again next year?
What would you like to see less of next year?
Any problems we should know about?
Is there a specific performer or event you'd like to see?
Would you go again?
If you ate at a downtown restaurant that night, which one?
...or anything you would like to say about it. Have at it in the comments.
