Oktoberfest, Leavenworth

28 Oct

I couldn’t afford the flight to Munich this year so I decided on the next best thing, Leavenworth! The drive to Leavenworth was amazing as you come down from Stevens Pass and start to follow the Wenatchee River. Fall was in full effect with stunning pockets of yellow and red amongst the evergreens. We eventually arrived in the Bavarian themed town and checked in to our hotel for the weekend. It took us all of a few minutes to get into our Lederhosen, fill our steins and start the festivities. As the rest of the team showed up we went on a big pub crawl and showed that town how to party!

The next day we all woke up feeling a little slow but slipped right back into our Lederhosen which smelled a little more of mustard and beer than the previous night. After a good breakfast we headed into the festival and got our steins filled for round 2. The festival works on a ticket system with each ticket costing you 1 USD. A beer will run you 7 tickets and a bratwurst costing 5 tickets. Tickets are non-refundable so make sure you do the math before you start tying one on!

With all the admin out of the way we posted up at a table and began what we came there to do, drink beer! We danced to the Oom-Pah-Pah bands and chugged back our steins while meeting some great people along the way.

It may not have been the same as Munich but Leavenworth sure kicked some ass and definitely won this round…
