A big birthday calls for a big celebration, and Puyallup will soon celebrate its 125th Anniversary with a family-friendly event that is sure to have something for everyone.
We’ll start with balloons and end with cake, but we’ll also have live music, entertaining speakers and special guests including representatives from the Puyallup Tribe of Indians. The City’s first mayor, Ezra Meeker, will make a special appearance and share his predictions for the future of Puyallup (the future, of course, being relative!).
In addition to the replica covered wagon, historic photographs and artifacts will be displayed from the Washington State Fair, the Puyallup School District, Good Samaritan Hospital, the Daffodil Festival and the Puyallup Police Department. A free raffle will give attendees the chance to win items donated by South Hill Mall, Absher Construction, The Fair, Mel Korum YMCA and Tiffany’s Skate Inn.
In association with the event, the Puyallup Historical Society will establish a temporary satellite museum on the ground floor of City Hall. The “Little Museum” will operate from Aug. 15th through the 23rd and admission will be free. The Historical Society has planned an entire week’s worth of activities and events to celebrate the Meeker Mansion’s own Quasquicentennial.
The City of Puyallup was founded in 1890 and now’s the time to gather together to pay homage to our history and celebrate our 125-year-old roots and sustaining pioneer spirit!
