Tacoma Freedom Fair

This 4th of July, celebrate with KOMO News at the Tacoma Freedom Fair, presented by Emerald Queen Casino and sponsored by Northwest Ford Stores & Titus Will Ford! Bring the whole family to the shores of Commencement Bay on Ruston Way for 2 miles of fun. Enjoy live music on seven stages, a car show, dozens of food booths and over 100 Arts and Craft/Commercial vendor booths, plus a fabulous air show and fireworks extravaganza! Help keep the tradition alive and plan to donate $5 or $10 at the gate to keep the Tacoma Freedom Fair going strong. Plus, avoid the fuss and take the shuttle bus from the Tacoma Dome Station parking garage on Puyallup Avenue or the Park and Ride lot at Tacoma Community College near the corner of South Mildred Street and South 12th Street. Go to for arrival instructions, tickets to special events, schedules, online donations, shuttle bus passes and more.

Climb to Fight

John Carlson, from KOMO News, has climbed the highest peaks in the Cascade range, including Mount Hood, Mount Adams, and Mount Rainier. Soon he will be climbing Mount Shuksan. It’s more than a challenge. It’s for a cause, Climb to Fight Breast Cancer. July 17th through July 19th, John will hike for another year to support the thousands of women who were diagnosed with breast cancer last year. John will not be climbing Mount Shuksan alone. He will be joined this year by KOMO 4's Denise Whitaker, as she celebrates her 50th Birthday when she summits Mount Shuksan!

The Climb to Fight Breast Cancer began in 1997. Over these years, climbers have experienced the thrill of standing above the clouds while making a huge impact with raising over $7 million to fund critical research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

You can even inquire about climbing a mountain yourself, anyone can climb a mountain with Fred Hutch. Every donation helps. And it's tax deductible.
