Tacoma Defiance, Tacoma Rainiers

Join Us at the 4th Annual Downtown Tacoma Holiday Haul Crawl

From carriage rides down Broadway to Carol-Oke in the Spanish Ballroom; from a Snow Globe Photo Booth to an appearance from the big jolly fellow himself – the 4th Annual Downtown Tacoma Holiday Haul Crawl has entertainment for youth, and those young at heart, with dozens of Tacoma’s favorite stores, restaurants, and neighbors opening their doors for a holiday celebration.

The Rainiers and Tacoma Defiance are constructing a totally Tacoma winter wonderland at 938 Broadway, where you can take free pictures with Rhubarb the Reindeer, Jack the Bear and Kris Kringle himself.

Our doors are open to the public from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, December 14, and admission is FREE. Come on down to 938 Broadway, little elves, and together we’ll celebrate R City and the holiday season.

With all of downtown Tacoma celebrating the 4th Annual Holiday Haul Crawl, there will be plenty to do with the entire family.

  • Carol-Oke includes celebrity judges Mayor Victoria Woodards, Evening on KING-TV host Saint Bryan, and our very own beloved mascot, Polar Boy. Swing by McMenamins Spanish Ballroom between 1-3 p.m. and claim the honor of the best holiday singer in Tacoma.
  • Ride with Gala Carriage along Broadway in a horse drawn carriage.
  • The Holiday Haul Crawl has the giant snow globe photo booth you didn’t know you needed.
  • TAM and the Bostwick Café are hosting the Rainbow Center’s gift-wrapping station to save you a step this holiday season.

You’ll want that wrapping station because there are dozens of businesses with specials and events going on all day. The heart of R City is turning into a celebration of the season and Tacoma. The Tacoma Night Market, various antique and vintage shops, the theaters, Broadway, Pacific, Commerce – downtown will be dressed in tinsel, ornaments, and evergreen.

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year in R City.
