Grab and Go Kid's Planner, May 25

Here's this week's family calender. Grab it and go!

I feel a pretty good weekend of family dates coming on.

Choose one, or all, and have a good time!

Tacoma Rainiers

When/Where: 7:05 p.m., both Wednesday and Thursday evening at Cheney Stadium.

Why Go: Peanuts, Cracker Jacks, hot dogs, baseball and Rhubarb (see the photo), guaranteed fun for the whole family. Besides Cheney Stadium has had major renovations, and what's spring without America's past time?

Price: $7 to $25 per seat.


Morgan Family YMCA Dance

When/Where: 7 p.m., both Saturday and Sunday evening at the Pantages Theater.

Why Go: Morgan Family YMCA Dance Department presents, “IT’S SHOWTIME”. A presentation of dance entertainment through film, television, musical theater, books, sports, opera’s, ballets, music, and musical artists. Come join in the showcase of dance through all art mediums.

Price: $8 for ages 12 and under, $13 for others.


When/Where: 6 p.m. - 7 p.m., Thursdays at the Gig Harbor Library.

Why Go: Chess builds brain power with problem solving and strategy skills in a classic form of competition. Twenty minutes of game introduction is followed by forty minutes of game play.

Price: Free and open to all kindergarten through eighth grade.


When/Where: 10 a.m. Saturday at Skansie Brothers Park.

Why Go: This free, family event is the largest street scramble in North America! The Gig Harbor Street Scramble is a “treasure hunt” through-out the community directing participants to 30 locations on a map.  Participants choose to do the event in either 90 minutes or three hours on foot or bike, individually or as a team. Not to mention the healthy lifestyle information booths along your treasure hunt for fun and health.

Price: Free.


When/Where: 7 p.m., Friday at Pacific Lutheran University's  Lagerquist Concert Hall.

Why Go: Teen writers and artists submitted their creative works for the Pierce County Library System’s "Teen Writing & Art Contest – Our Own Expressions." This free event will allow the writers and artists to showcase their winning pieces. Local and young art appreciation may ignite a spark of inspiration in your young one.  

Price: Free.
