TACOMA: Expand on ice-skating venue

During the holidays we took our family ice skating in the ring at Tollefson Plaza. What fun!
It is great to see this space used and alive with music and people.

A suggestion: Why not enlist some of the farmer’s market vendors and start building a Christmas market like you find in all the cities in Europe.

Since the venue appears to be a success already in the first year, it might be an incentive for vendors who create Christmas decor, Christmas baked goods offered with hot cider, etc., to set up their tents around the market, even spilling over to the little plaza in front of the museum. It could become a great draw in future years.
