EWA Road Trip – Leavenworth Christmas Lighting Festival

Leavenworth Christmas Lighting Festival
Report by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

On Sunday December 18th, 2011 Eastern Washington Adventures members met up at the München Haus in Leavenworth Washington for our annual Leavenworth Christmas Lighting Festival get together. We had lunch then head out to see things around town. Around 4:30 PM we gathered in font of the gazebo for the main event, the lighting of the town. Great family fun. The day was a lot of fun thanks to the people of Leavenworth that put so much work into making the Christmas Lighting Festival happen.

My family stayed Sunday and Monday nights at the Evergreen Inn so we could enjoy what Leavenworth has to offer through Tuesday afternoon. The kids had fun sledding and shopping. I enjoyed the places you can eat and drink.

We want to thank all the people that came out to this Eastern Washington Adventures get together.

Merry Christmas to all!

I bought a growler full of Lokal Lager from Icicle Brewery to take back home.

We took a drive out to Lake Wenatchee State Park before heading back home to Selah.

This was a great family vacation.

Go Play!
