While we aren’t able to hold this event as we have in years past, we have re-imagined our annual 4th of July event as a Drive-In celebration! Brought to you by the Puyallup / Sumner Chamber of Commerce and Bill Korum’s Puyallup Nissan, the fun happens at the Gold lot at the Washington State Fairgrounds. Decorate your car (win prizes), enjoy streamed live music, prize drawings, food trucks, and a walking map to local dining. The evening will culminate with a spectacular Fireworks Display brought to you by MultiCare.
To gain entry to the Gold VIP lot, you must purchase your $20 vehicle pass in advance ($20 early bird rate available through July 3 or until sold out). Gates open at 5:00pm (all vehicles must enter by 7:30pm) and the first 1,000 guests will receive a U.S. Flag Bandanna which can be worn in a variety of ways, such as a neck gaiter or facial covering. There is an optional Family Fun Bucket ($10) with goodies for guests of all ages. Safety protocols, modeled after our state’s Phase 2 Guidance for Drive-In Theaters, will be in place, including vehicle distancing, spacing at portable restrooms & food trucks, and facial coverings strongly encouraged in places where physical distancing is difficult (according to CDC recommendations).
