We spent a couple of nights in Leavenworth, WA over the Thanksgiving holiday. It's about 2.5 hours from Seattle on the east side of the Cascade Mountains. In fact, it is almost due east of where we live. Leavenworth is known as "Washington's Bavarian Village" and if you check out the pictures you'll see some examples of the Bavarian architecture. You'll also see another thing they are famous for: their Christmas lights. In fact, this year they are being honored by Good Morning America...
Good Morning America Comes to Leavenworth
Good Morning America is doing a new segment called "Good Morning America Lights Up The Holidays". They will be doing a live feed from Leavenworth to begin Good Morning America's show in New York.
The special will take place for 5 days ONLY. We were selected as one of the top 5 in the United States for the filming of our Christmas celebration.
The Good Morning America film crew arrived November 15 under bright blue skies to film Leavenworth preparing for the upcoming Lighting Ceremony. These shots will be used as teasers to entice viewers to watch the show and some of the clips will be used on the 29th with the live feed.
Good Morning America host Sam Champion will be here for the live feed to New York City on November 29th from 4-6AM as we light our town. They encourage everyone to be here at 4am. Hot beverages and roasted chestnuts will be available. Come join the party!
This is unbelievable coverage for us and we invite you to join in the fun. We will be roasting chestnuts and serving hot coffee. Since the feed is live to New York after the fun we can tune in to Good Morning America at 7am our time to watch the show.
Try and check it out, if you can - or, Tivo it!
