Brag about yourself
Pumpkin spice and everything nice. Looking for something autumn-y to do? Pick up your pumpkins at the Spooner Farms Harvest Festival, or enjoy the trappings of a pumpkin patch without the hassle of actually taking any home with you at the Conservatory Pumpkin Patch at the Seymour Botanical Conservatory. If it's the Great Pumpkin you're after, join Snoopy and the Peanuts gang on the Mount Rainier Railroad. Have a taste for something a bit darker? Dracula makes an appearance at Tacoma Little Theatre, or you might try your hand at ghost hunting on the Boos & Booze beer and ghost tour of Tacoma.
