Ride the Sounder train to the Washington State Fair in Puyallup!
Why fight traffic and hassle with parking when you can just take Sounder to the Fair? Special Sounder trains will run on two Saturdays, Sept. 14 and 21, serving nine stations between Everett and Puyallup. From the Puyallup Station, you can jump on a free Pierce Transit shuttle bus to the Fair's exclusive Sounder entrance.
Two trains will take passengers between the Snohomish County stations of Everett, Mukilteo and Edmonds and Seattle's King Street Station. No changing of trains is necessary for Snohomish County riders to continue south. Three trains will run between King Street Station, Tukwila, Kent, Auburn, and Sumner before reaching Puyallup Station.
After the Fair, head to the Sounder entrance to take the shuttle back to Puyallup Station, just make sure you allow yourself plenty of time to catch the train. There are only two return trains, with the last one leaving at 6:50 p.m.
