Christmas Town - Leavenworth

~ huge decorated christmas tree
~ thousands of twinkling lights
~ snow dusted mountain in the backdrop
~ carolers
~ live holiday music
~ kids sledding
~ horse carriages
~ Christmas characters strolling on the street
~ snow shower
~ roasted chestnuts
~ hot chocolate

... precisely how it was during the recent visit to this beautiful Bavarian themed town of Leavenworth, WA, in this holiday season. The air here is filled with sound, sight and smell of christmas !







Christmas here is indeed "magical".









 To get into the holiday spirit, there is perhaps no better plan than Leavenworth.






A variety of entertainment events happen all weekends during the holiday season.
Pictures above are the Christmas characters marching into the main street and greeting visitors. A chance for the children to meet their favorite characters and to take pictures with them !




Mr and Mrs Claus ... greeting the guests










The Christmas Lighting Festival takes place on the first three weekends of December. 
As the dusk falls over the town, every building, tree comes alive with countless sparkling christmas lights. Its a magical moment.












December is truly the most wonderful time of the year.

Leavenworth is filled with many other festivals and events all year round. 
You are sure to see something new on every trip to this beautiful small town.
