By Kevin Fitzgerald     Oct 13, 2013 in Lifestyle
Leavenworth - Each year, the town of Leavenworth, WA, puts on a vibrant display of festivities during its Oktoberfest celebration. Visitors can come to enjoy the food, music, and beer.
This small town nestled in the Cascade Mountains 100 miles east of Seattle has long been known for its Bavarian-style architecture. The town was originally founded at the end of the 19th century but was transformed into a village with a Bavarian theme in the 1960s as a way to boost tourism. Today, Leavenworth is one of the top tourist attractions in the Pacific Northwest.
This October weekend, Leavenworth was bustling with excitement. People from nearby and distant locations came to this quaint town to experience all the splendor of Oktoberfest. The celebration was enhanced by pleasant weather conditions and the gorgeous colors of fall foliage.
