New for 2015!
Attention Soccer Ballers! Now, we include a game with your weekend admission that is safe, entertaining to watch, and hilariously fun to play: bubble soccer (aka bubble football). What on God’s green Earth is bubble soccer, you ask? The most action-packed, entertaining, delightful to watch, safest version of soccer the world has ever seen! Take one part soccer, one part pillowfight, one part vaudeville slapstick comedy, mix well, and what you get looks a little bit like this:


So, clearly just a little bit different than the soccer we have come to know and appreciate. If by “a little bit different” you mean zany, unpredictable, whacky, hilarious, farcical, and, in fact, an entire thesaurus full of words that mean fun and/or adventure.

As with soccer, bubble soccer is played on a grass field or indoor gym of usual dimensions, with a referee, and two goals. Sometimes time is kept according to regulations, or games are often shortened by design, by exhaustion, or by the inability of people convulsed with laughter to run after a ball anymore. This event is somewhat subject to the weather, so it may be closed on rainy weekends (admission cost will reflect any closure at time of purchase).


Pumpkin Smash … come enjoy a first of its kind here in Pierce County – the inaugural Pumpkin Smash event at Maris Farms. Join the Wolf (100.7 FM) on Saturday, Oct. 31st for a day of pumpkin crushing, tossing and smashing activities that are sure to provide plenty of entertainment and excitement!

Don’t trash ’em, SMASH ’em!!! Come take part in the destruction of our pumpkins or bring your own! If you’ve ever wondered what to do with your old pumpkins once Halloween has come and gone, this is the answer…Don’t miss exciting activities like the Pumpkin Sky Drop, Pumpkin Bowling and Pumpkin Pounding! You may also take part in the Pumpkin Relay Race, Pumpkin Chunking and Pumpkin Darts! These are just a few of the events and activities you can expect at this “smash-tastic” gathering!
