Last weekend, the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium opened the Cats of the Canopy exhibit in the Asian Forest Sanctuary across from the elephant barn. Check out the clouded leopard cubs, Taji and Sumalee, in the cub den all day, and spot Chee Wit, a 1.5-year-old male, in the large exhibit from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Come meet the clouded leopard cubs too. Since this is AFTER opening weekend and after the start of the school year, I’d expect crowds to be minimal. Hope you have fun!
The Tacoma Rainiers are going retro! Tonight (Aug 29th) thru Wed. (Aug 31st), kids 12 and under tickets are 50 cents, same price as Cheney’s 1st season in 1960. 1st pitch @ 7:05pm. And, you might get a fireworks show too!
So, get a hot dog and watch America’s favorite sport. Be there or be square.

The weather is grand and the crowds are small – a perfect time for folks 65 or better to get half off general admission to Northwest Trek and take advantage of the relaxed pace of fall. Take a leisurely stroll through the core area’s paved walkways or sit awhile on one of the many benches along the way. Enjoy a lovely ride on the tram and experience the exhilarating herding behaviors that only happen during the fall season.
On Aug 27th at 11:30 till 1 pm, head to Oak Harbor’s Windjammer Park for Driftwood Day. This is a great contest to see who can create great art using only what you find on the beach. See more information below.
From Sept 2-4th, come celebrate 38 Years of tugboats and maritime heritage celebrated on the beautiful Olympia waterfront. Harbor Days is an annual festival where tugboats return to the southernmost tip of Puget Sound for three days of entertainment, food, art, history, and a last farewell to the summer.
Vintage, working and retired tugboats are moored at Olympia’s Percival Landing. Many of them are open for tour on Saturday of the festival. Be on hand at noon Sunday as the tugs leave shore to participate in the Annual Harbor Days Tugboat Races, out in the deep channel of the bay.
