August Battle of the Bows @ Franklin Park
Aug 14 @ 1:00 pm

Tacoma Battle Games: Battle of the Bows is a fun outdoor activity for youths and adults in which two groups engage in mock archery combat using padded tipped arrows. The goal is to work as a team to eliminate your opponents with team tactics and skills in archery. (all skill levels are invited, you can only get better if you practice!)

All players must be 14 years old or older and must be mature enough mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally to play on the war field. All players 14 to 17 must have a legal guardian present at the game at all times by either playing or watching from the sidelines.
Feel free to bring chairs, shade, and snacks!

First time playing? Join us at 12:30 pm for an orientation and a mini-training session before the games start at 1:00 pm!

Tacoma Water Lantern Festival @ Spanaway Lake Park
Sep 11 @ 5:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Water Lantern Festival is back!

Tacoma Water Lantern Festival is coming up on September 11, 2021!

Voted #1 Best Cultural Festival by USA TODAY!

Water Lantern Festival is a floating lantern event that is all about connections. Magical nights in cities across the U.S. include food, games, activities, vendors, music and the beauty of thousands of lanterns adorned with letters of love, hope and dreams reflected upon the water.

As the sun begins to set on the evening sky, the Water Lantern Festival begins to shine with the launch of the lanterns onto the water as we Light The Water together. Watch your unique lantern drift out into the water as it joins other lanterns carrying hope, love, happiness, healing, peace, and connection. It’s a night that you’ll never forget.

Tickets are selling fast!
