Visiting Puget Sound | Fall 2014

“Sweaters, sweets, and Santas abound” as Bellingham ushers in the holiday season with a variety of crafty community celebrations. The 2014 Holiday Craft Bazaar is a fine example of the festive fun Bellingham features this fall. The event takes place at the Squalicum Boathouse and boasts a bounty of unique handmade gifts like candles, ornaments, scents, jewelry and more – perfect for checking Mom off your holiday shopping list.

Bellingham is also home to Western Washington University. Besides boasting notable alumni like indie-rock heroes Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie and Carrie Brownstein of TV’s Portlandia, the school offers a variety of cultural events to the community throughout the fall semester.

The Western Washington University Vikings men’s basketball team is the pride of Bellingham sports fans. After getting into gear in late October, the Vikings continue to host home games at Sam Carver Gymnasium through the end of February 2015. Check the schedule during your Puget Sound-area visit to make sure you don’t miss any of the fast-paced action.

Called “Washington’s Martime City,” Gig Harbor is known for its culture, heritage, and small-town charm – and the 2014 Gig Harbor Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony is the perfect way to get a sense of the community. Held at Skansie Brothers Park on December 6th, the event treats attendees to coffee, hot chocolate, cider, and cookies while the Dickens Carolers sing holiday classics. Santa Claus himself is even scheduled to make an appearance as he joins Mayor Jill Guernsey in lighting the tree.

To the south in Tacoma, residents and visitors lace up and take the ice at the Polar Plaza at Tollefson Plaza, which is open for free skating from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., November 21st through January 11th.

Seattle is the Puget Sound’s epicenter of commerce and culture – and its also the home of the defending Super Bowl champions. The Seattle Seahawks attempt to relive that championship glory as they defend CenturyLink Field against heated division rivals, the San Francisco 49ers, in an important matchup on December 14th. Don your blue and green and join the 67,000 screaming fans affectionately nicknamed “the 12th Man” to witness hard-hitting NFL action.
