Leavenworth Town and Tree Lighting Ceremony // (c) 2010 Leavenworth Chamber
On Clipper Vacations' Leavenworth Town and Tree Lighting excursion, clients can experience the magic of the holidays in a sweet Bavarian town at the base of the 8,000-foot-high Cascade Mountains.
Motor coaches pick up participants at several Seattle locations and arrive in Leavenworth at approximately 11 a.m. A complimentary continental breakfast is served onboard during the scenic drive.
Once in Leavenworth, clients are greeted by a beautiful snow-dusted gazebo, food booths and the aroma of roasting chestnuts. Holiday music creates a festive atmosphere as shoppers browse the many unique shops of the town, and St. Nick and Father Christmas stroll down the decorated streets.
At dusk, thousands of bundled-up carolers gather to sing favorite holiday tunes during the dramatic lighting of the entire village. Motorcoaches depart Leavenworth following the lighting ceremony, arriving back in Seattle at about 8:30 pm.
The tour is available on Dec. 4, 5, 11, 12 and 18. Rates are $59 per adult and $46 per child when booked seven days in advance. Rates drop by 10 percent when reservations are booked online.
