4 LEAVENWORTH, WA Christ­mas Light­ing Fes­ti­val

Country Sampler Holiday Homes December 2018 - - Seasonal Joys - PHO­TO­GRAPHS COUR­TESY OF LEAVENWORTH CHAM­BER OF COM­MERCE.

This quaint Bavar­ian town trans­forms into a vil­lage of lights ev­ery Fri­day through Sun­day be­tween Novem­ber 30 and De­cem­ber 16, 2018. Wit­ness the Light­ing Cer­e­mony each Satur­day and Sun­day evening when over half a mil­lion lights il­lu­mi­nate the vil­lage with a bit of fan­fare. Each Fri­day, St. Nick­o­laus ar­rives to tell the tale of his legacy and give gifts of “gold” for the good boys and girls. Through­out the day, you’ll find live mu­si­cal per­for­mances, car­ol­ers strolling through town, cos­tumed Christ­mas char­ac­ters, sled­ding, roasted chest­nuts, and a Cookie Crawl on Sun­days for kids to fol­low the map and col­lect free cookies. If you’re not able to make it for any of the Light­ing Cer­e­monies, don’t worry! The lights are on dis­play seven days a week through Valen­tine’s week­end.
