Have you ever watched Seattle Christmas lights creating the magical holiday atmosphere? The snowy mountain village of Leavenworth, some two hours away from Seattle, attracts thousands of people in late November. They gather on Front Street to celebrate the advent season by singing songs, trying delicious food, and marveling at half a million lights. Leavenworth brims with old-fashioned holiday magic each weekend night in December. Live musical performances fill brightly-lit streets, and St. Nicholas arrives at the Front Street Gazebo at 4:30 p.m.

On Saturdays and Sundays at noon, Santa and kids' favourite holiday characters march from the Festhalle to the Gazebo. The parade is followed by musical performances in the Front Street Gazebo, featuring handbell choirs, marching bands, and solo artists.

While children are sledding in Front Street Park, adults can stop by a Gluhwein Tent and snack on roasted chestnuts. On Sundays, kids can participate in the Cookie Crawl and search for hidden treats. Skiing, tubing, sleigh, dogsled rides, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing are just a few of the activities that you can try during the Leavenworth Lighting Festival.
