This was my second year performing at the Leavenworth Christmas Lighting Festival, and I’m already looking forward to next year! If you get a chance, be sure to check this festival out. It runs every weekend in December, and they really pull out all the stops for Christmas. For those of you that don’t know about Leavenworth, it is a very small town in North Central Washington, and several years ago the whole town got together and re-did the town in a Bavarian Theme. It is surrounded by mountains, and high enough so that they usually have plenty of snow this time of year. To say that they decorate for Christmas is an understatement! If you are anywhere near Seattle, just look to the northeast after the sun sets, and that glow you see in the sky will probably be Leavenworth!
I was there last Saturday and Sunday, and got to do two performances each day. I don’t usually get to perform Christmas music, so this was the perfect opportunity. I especially liked the nightime shows outside in the town square…..and fortunately they had some heaters on stage, because it was cold! No wonder Santa has a red nose and rosey cheeks. He was there, along with Father Christmas, horse drawn carts, Wise Men, and tons of people taking it all in. Unfortunately I didn’t get any video’s due to time and technical difficulties. Maybe next year?
