Winter is but a distant thought here on the West Coast, with spring officially in full bloom. To mark this inspiring seasonal change, Puyallup is proud to host to the annual Daffodil Festival.
 
The festival officially kicked off in early February, with events taking place all over the city through April and into May. The Daffodil Parade, a town favorite and must-see for visitors to Puyallup, winds its way through Puyallup at 12:45 p.m. on Saturday, April 11.
 
The Daffodil Parade is a time-honored tradition in this area, which was home to numerous flower farmers in the mid-1900s. Today, the Daffodil farms have made way for other endeavors but the yellow blossom is still a symbol for the community itself, celebrating the people of Pierce County. This year, the parade tours through Tacoma, Puyallup, Sumner and Orting with more than 180 entries, including floats, marching bands and mounted units.
 
Now, more Daffodilian business ... (Ahem) Here ye, here ye: The 24 Daffodil Princesses would like to welcome all princesses and their princesses-in-training to the annual Princess Tea at the Laurel Creek Manor on May 3. Tea, light snacks and favors are served under a large tent on the beautiful manor grounds at 11 a.m. or 2 p.m., and there will be dancing!
 
Also part of the Daffodil Festival events, the Daffodil 5K Challenge gets underway April 5 at 11:15 a.m. on W. Pioneer Avenue in Puyallup. Race by yourself or with a team for $35 per person.
 
For more information on any of the Daffodil Festival events happening now in Puyallup, head to their website here, and don’t forget to book your accommodation at the Best Western Premier Plaza Hotel & Conference Center.
