With the peaks of Mount Rainier as their backdrop, and the babbling streams of the Puyallup River as their soundtrack, golfers can advance across the 18-hole championship course at High Cedars Golf Club with zero sense of urgency. Along the way, the property's 220 acres showcases a path of lush fairways, greens, and tees. Of course, time is often of the essence, so players hoping to squeeze in a quick round can try their luck on the club's 9-hole executive course. Extended visits still might be a necessity, though, since High Cedars also features a full-service restaurant and bar, as well as a 30-station driving range. PGA golf instructor Tad Davis is also available for lessons, encouraging players to improve their game without having to install a laser scope on their driver.

The zombie apocalypse is nigh, and now is the time to prepare. At Puyallup Zombie Paintball and Haunted Experience, aspiring zombie hunters take position on a hay-hauling truckbed, laying claim to one of the paintball markers mounted on the perimeter. As the truck treks through the haunted grounds on a 20-acre loop, players take aim at the hordes of undead, practicing for the day zombies actually do pass through town.

Glimpses into the Elizabethan era fulfill the mission of bringing a bygone Europe to life. Turning the Kelley Farm into the Village of Merriwick, entertainers of all types, from courtiers to peasants, engage fairgoers with a range of acts. Flanked by her entourage, Queen Elizabeth travels through the streets, perhaps on her way to watch the jousters compete for her phone number, or perhaps to watch sprightly performers such as the piccolo puppet players or The Dread Crew of Oddwood, who play "mahogany metal"—a mix of hard rock, Celtic punk, and traditional Irish tunes.
Elsewhere, merchants peddle their wares to passersby, talking up goods such as hand-forged weapons and roasted turkey legs. Camel rides and bubble-filled buckets cater to kids, and adults can duck into two alehouses where quick-witted wenches pour draft microbrews and ciders. For guests who want to spend the whole weekend immersed in the festivities, organizers reserve a section of the grounds for tent and RV camping.
Owner and black-belt Donna Middendorf of Sumner Taekwondo Academy leads a team of instructors who share their expertise in Korean hand-to-hand combat with kids and adults. And while the classes spend time with the more martial aspects of the art, they're really not about fighting. For Donna and the team, Taekwondo promotes peace through learning self-respect and gaining confidence—it's the heart of the discipline. At the same time, the instructors help students hone their punching and kicking skills and they engage with their peers in safe, supervised sparring sessions and fully-padded staring contests.
