Sell your junk at Sprinker

It’s a fun twist on a rummage sale. Load up and sell your treasures from the back of your vehicle at the Second Annual Junk in Your Trunk Sale at Sprinker Recreation Center in Spanaway on Saturday, July 10.

The event is 9 a.m.-4 p.m. and space is limited. To reserve a spot, go to or call 253.798.4703. The registration fee is $15 per car, truck or van and $25 per RV or camper.

An easier way to get to the Freedom Fair

Don't want to miss the spectacular Tacoma Freedom Fair this Fourth of July, but don't want to drive? Why worry about where to park and how far you'll have to walk to attend Tacoma's annual Independence Day celebration on the Ruston Way waterfront? Check out the Pierce Transit Express schedule:

Starting at 10 a.m., Pierce Transit Express buses transport you non-stop to the Freedom Fair. Buses leave Park & Ride lots at the Tacoma Dome Station at 610 Puyallup Ave. and at Tacoma Community College (TCC) at South 19th and Mildred streets. Service runs every 15 minutes until 8 p.m. and resumes after the fireworks.

Buy a Pierce Transit Weekend/Holiday All-Day Pass for $3.50 to receive unlimited rides on the 4th. All-day passes may be purchased with cash on the 4th at TCC and the Tacoma Dome Station or on any local Pierce Transit bus. The one-way 4th of July Express fare is $1.75, the same as our regular service fare. Customers with a Regional Reduced Fare Permit (RRFP) and youth ages 6-18 may purchase an All-Day Pass for $1.50, or ride for 75¢ each way.

ORCA cards loaded with a July monthly pass or Summer Youth Pass are also good on the 4th of July Express. E-purse is not accepted for this service. Your valid transfer is good for $1.75 toward the purchase of an All-Day Pass.

Up to four children (ages 13 and under) may ride Pierce Transit 4th of July Express service at no additional charge when accompanied by a fare-paying passenger!

Park free all day at the TCC Park & Ride or the Tacoma Dome Station.
