What’s Happening in Pierce County: May 2024 Edition

by | May 2, 2024

Welcome to the May 2024 edition of your local Pierce County update! As your dedicated real estate agent, I’m excited to bring you a blend of community events and insightful tips to help you make the most of this vibrant area.

Spring into Local Events

May marks a period bustling with activities, starting with the iconic Daffodil Festival. Celebrating its 91st year, the festival continues to honor our agricultural roots with a grand parade, royalty events, and community engagements designed to “Shine” the spotlight on our local pride and joy​. 

Don’t miss the Pierce County Prayer Breakfast on May 9, an early morning gathering that offers a moment of reflection and community connection at the Washington State Fairgrounds​.

Explore and Engage

For those who love nature and history, May is the perfect month to explore. Take a scenic ferry ride from Tacoma to Vashon Island and enjoy the serene beauty of Puget Sound or delve into the rich history of the Puyallup Tribe at the Chief Leschi School Museum​​. Car enthusiasts will be thrilled with the array of vintage vehicles showcased at LeMay – America’s Car Museum.

Get Active

May also brings opportunities to get physically active. The Foothills Trail invites bike enthusiasts for a scenic ride, or you can join the community for the Pierce County Trails Day, celebrating the beauty and accessibility of our local trails.

Community and Family

Family-friendly events are in full bloom this May. Engage in unique bonding experiences at the Mommy and Me Tea Party or enjoy a fun movie night under the stars at Meridian Habitat Park​.

Health and Wellness

Health is a communal focus, and with Alex’s Promise, the Daffodil Festival extends its reach beyond festivities into mental health awareness, providing resources and promoting wellbeing throughout our community.

May is not just a month, but a celebration of the diverse, dynamic community spirit of Pierce County. Whether through participating in local events, exploring the beauty around us, or enjoying moments with family, there’s something here for everyone. Let’s make this May one to remember!
