3 to See: A Play’s Premiere, A Paddle-Along, and a Closer Look at the Aquarium

‘Welcome to Indian Country’

Through seven interwoven narrations, “Welcome to Indian Country” tells the story of modern Native people — their life, loves, and resilience. Presented by The Washington Center for the Performing Arts, the performance will be available to stream on-demand, as well as performed for live, in-person audiences on the Washington Center Main Stage June 3.

Lantern Paddle for the Animals

Join Tacoma Ocean Fest in the city’s first-ever Lantern Paddle, an evening float to bring awareness to the threatened marine species of the Pacific Northwest. Residents are encouraged to paddle or follow the group on land as TOF illuminates the Foss Waterway with lanterns. The event will shed light on issues like pollution, climate change, and species extinction.

Deep-Dive at the Aquarium

Have you ever wondered how sharks are cared for? Where tiger rays find their food? What a jellyfish feels like? Beginning June 4, Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium will offer visitors a behind-the-scenes look at the aquarium, opening up areas typically only aquarists would normally have access to. Book your private tour here.
