The holidays are over, but Tacoma’s events are still on! For the first few days of the month, you can still catch the area’s Christmas lights displays, if you missed them (and it’s not a bad time to go—far fewer crowds than in December).

Kick your month off with the annual Polar Bear Plunge at Point Defiance, or stay a little warmer at any number of shows, musicals and performances at venues from Broadway Center to the Tacoma Comedy Club.
