The next day and throughout the week, over one hundred "indie films" are shown up and down the streets of Tacoma, at different venues. The evening movies usually have an after party at a local restaurant. There are also vendors set up all over the town too. It is a fun filled week. It is recommended to get VIP tickets to attend special screenings, meet n greets, and after parties.
While you are in Tacoma, there are many other things you can do while waiting to see "your favorite picks" to watch. The Chihuly Bridge of Glass, is a glass art lovers paradise. Watch glass art blowers at work and marvel at the floor to ceiling covered in handcrafted glass blown art pieces. Another great place to visit is the "Lemay Museum at Marymount". There are all kinds of old cars and trucks from all eras. Head south to Sumner via a light rail rapid transit system, only about 17 minutes for some world famous Rhubarb pie. Explore the historic town while there. Take the train back to do some shopping. The next day have your dessert in Steilacoom, just 12.5 miles Southwest for a soda from a 1908 soda fountain, and a milkshake at Bair Drugstore. Make the most of this visit!
