Spring Fair - Do It

This week our big event is the Puyallup Western Washington State Fair (ahem) Spring Fair.  Yeah, I know.  The name change is stupid and way too long.  It's always been the Puyallup Fair and that's what we all call it.  So that's gonna be hard one to change.

They do a mini-version of the ginormous Fall Fair in the spring.  It's pretty much all the same stuff, just not quite as much of it.  A few less vendors, a little less tents, smaller scale in entertainment and concert events.  So if you love that stuff and don't want to wait around until next September, get your butt over this weekend.  Oh yeah, did I mention that it's only 4 days instead of 2 weeks?

Their description:  "Get ready to shake off your winter blues at Washington's biggest celebration of spring, the 25th annual Washington State Spring Fair in Puyallup, April 10-13, 2014.  Welcome in the spring with baby animal exhibits, delicious fair treats like scones and elephant ears, tons of free entertainment including racing pigs, leaping DockDogs and free music, and learn new gardening tips and tricks at Northwest Living & Garden.  Plus, see cars smashing at the Slamfest Demolition Derby and Monster Truck shows, and whirl and twirl on some of your favorite rides!"

Those are the All Alaska Racing Pigs.  Super cute, but how do those little porkers run so fast?

Hours:  Thurs 2pm-10pm, Fri & Sat 10am-10pm, Sun 10am-8pm
Tickets and more info on their website:  Spring Fair

Thurs is kids free day!!  And please note, it doesn't start until 2pm on the first day - we'll all be setting up in the morning and you can't get in.

Soapworks Studio is always part of the Artists in Action area.  We are all local handcrafted and handmade artists, doing demonstrations of our work and selling our wares at a separate display from the other commercial vendors.  For the Spring Fair you will find us in the Hobby Hall.
