DAFFODILS - Conclusion

60-foot street parade moves through Tacoma, Sumner and Puyallup. The curtain drops on April 14, when the Tacoma Yacht Club stages its annual all-Puget Sound marine regatta on Commencement Bay.

Hundreds of pleasure yachts, sailboats, outboards and commercial craft stream past spectators along Ruston Way, their starboard sides decorated with thousands of fresh daffodils. Tacoma's fire boat stages a colorful water display as a feature of the regatta and members of the Tacoma Outboard Association put on a precision drill with their little racers.
