Free drive-in on August 22 at the Washington State Fair grounds

Want to have fun with your family in Puyallup? The Washington State Fair screens a movie on weekends in its parking lot.

“The Goonies” will air on August 22 at around 9 pm, or after sunset, in the Blue parking lot.

While the screening is free, the fair asked viewers to make a donation to the Puyallup Food Bank.

The Fisher Scone truck will be in the parking lot, said fair spokesperson Stacy Van Horne. Visitors can bring their own food.

The event is on a first come, first served basis until the capacity of 500 vehicles is reached, the fair said. The doors of the car park open at 7:30 p.m.

There will be no amplified sound, therefore the sound will be broadcast by the radios of the vehicles.

Each vehicle will be 10 feet away.

The Washington State Fair will follow COVID-19 public health safety protocols, such as social distancing markers at food vendors and restrooms and limited capacity in restrooms. Hand sanitizer will be available.

Staff and vendors will wear appropriate personal protective equipment, the fair said. Visitors should wear a cloth face cover when leaving the vehicle.
