Leavenworth Washington (Dec 2010)

Leavenworth Christmas Lighting Festival
Report by Clay Graham - Eastern Washington Off Road

On Sunday December 19, 2010 Eastern Washington Off Road met up at the M?nchen Haus in Leavenworth Washington for the last day of the 2010 Christmas Lighting Festival.

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

Merry Christmas to all!

Below are the pictures of our Leavenworth Adventure.

It had snowed pretty good around where we live in Selah Washington the day before.
The pass reports looked good on this day so we fueled up and headed to Leavenworth.


The traffic slowed coming across Blewett Pass because of all the road smut being kicked up.

We got to Leavenworth just before 1 PM. We parked in a $10 a day parking area next to the Adventure Inn and headed to meet the others.




The M?nchen Haus has a great family atmosphere, great food and beer so this was the place to have lunch to start our Leavenworth Adventure.
We all sat in the M?nchen Haus's heated outdoor courtyard.


TJ40 & family.




My family all had the Big ?BOB? Bratwurst. The kids had soda as my wife and I enjoyed a Pilsner.

My abnormal family.


After lunch we headed out the back door.




We ran into Santa so we had to get a family picture with the old guy.

Here is a guy my youngest son "Odo" wants nothing to do with.






The kids played some on the sledding hills.


Moving down the road. I am not sure what Doc is doing.




Whoops, missed the Wood Shop.






It sure is nice they have these fireplaces out on the street.

Pretzels make good Christmas ornaments too!




There are many cool shops to see.


A Reindeer got loose.


We headed back to the rig to warm up and have some hot cocoa.


We got back just in time for the Christmas Lighting Ceremony.


As we sang Silent Night the stars came from each side of town.
As they walked in front of each building, the Christmas Lights came on.




Then came the count down to light up the trees in the park. Click picture to see video.


Taking a walk enjoying the lights as the music plays in the park.

I have to make it back up there again. Especially with all the snow, a hot drink, or a cold beer Leavenworth is really cool.
