Remember when you were little, and you were enthralled with snow globes? A trip to Leavenworth is about as close to the real thing as you’re going to get. Nestled on the Eastern cusp of the Cascades, the quaint Bavarian Village transforms when the snow flies, turning itself into the ultimate holiday town.

Hundreds of thousands of twinkling lights, carolers, cocoa, kids sledding, the horse-drawn carriage…it is enough to make put any snow globe to shame. Want to make some memories with the family? Treat yourself to a winter experience that you will never forget!

For three weekends, December 2 – 4, December 9 – 11, and December 16 -18, Leavenworth turns into a magical wonderland for the whole family. On Fridays, Santa Claus comes to town, music fills the air and the excitement begins. Saturdays and Sundays are full of live music and entertainment, a living nativity and roasted chestnuts. Finally, on Sunday nights, the huge Christmas Tree Lighting at 4:30pm tops off the weekend of merriment.

It’s an annual tradition that kicks off the season with lots of fun. Go to the website at to learn more and plan your weekend away at Leavenworth.
