Let's Play- Sports and Fitness Fest

A new year means people looking to get active. Well, the Tacoma-Pierce County Sports Commission and The Children’s Museum, YMCA, MultiCare Orthopedic, and Sports Medicine are teaming up to help out by hosting the first annual LET’S PLAY! Sports and Fitness Fest all this weekend, January 14th-16th.

Taking place in conjunction with the grand opening of the Tacoma Children’s Museum, the purpose of the three-day, multi-sport event at the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center is for children and adults to participate, educate and compete in a variety of recreational sports and fitness activities, including some sports that may be new and fun to many like rugby, karate and even dragon boat racing. Hasn’t everyone wanted to test out their “karate chop” at one point in their life?

Admission is free for children 12 and under, and five non-perishable food items or $5 for age 13 and over. Events occurring throughout Saturday and Sunday will include a variety of sports tournaments; instructional clinics on fitness, health and wellness; as well as ongoing open participation physical activities for all ages. This then culminates with the 2.5k Let’s Walk on Monday Jan. 16th to deliver donated food items to the Martin Luther Kind Jr. Celebration Food Drive at the Tacoma Dome.
