The Puyallup Fair is here once again and runs through September 23rd. Located in Puyallup, WA, the Puyallup Fair is also known as the Western Washington Fair to some. Things to Do? Whether it is the tried and true Krusty Pup, Pete’s BBQ or if you try something new… the Fair food is sure to please! There are a number of beer/liquor/wine gardens that offer live (or TV) entertainment as well. And speaking of live entertainment, the Puyallup Concert Series offers a good mix of artists to choose from. Why not visit the wide variety of animals while you’re here… like the six-day old piglets (the day I was there anyway), the Beef Barn (cattle), chicks, rabbits or take in the rodeo (although you’ve missed the rodeo as it was Sept 7-9th). Catch the largest pumpkin recorded in Puyallup Fair history or check out your favorite hobby, agriculture display, chainsaw carving, and more. And of course, there are plenty of vendors trying to sell their goods and services. Oh, and we can’t forget the rides now can we? Maybe you’ll try The Giant Slide, Vertigo (swing), or Zero Gravity. One of the new exhibits this year is the Rainforest Adventure – you’ll find toucans, snapping turtles, roaches, and more – a welcomed addition! And if you are looking for a bit of history… Brown & Haley is celebrating their 100th year – you might like to purchase a commemorative tin of Almond Roca for a gift… the holidays will soon be at our doorstep. They are also part of this year’s Fair Museum. So much to see!

Note: Starting next year, they are changing the name of the Puyallup Fair to the Washington STATE FAIR. Somewhat similar to the Evergreen State Fair… in Monroe.
