Tickets on Sale Now for the only Holiday Snow Train to Leavenworth’s Tree Lighting Festival!
Seattle, WA –A trip to the North Pole isn't in the cards this Christmas. But who needs negative temps and tons of travel, when you can join Alki Tours on the only daylight train to the legendary Christmas town of Leavenworth to see the annual Lighting Festival. The fun begins as you board the train departing from King Street Station, Edmonds Station, or in Everett. Passenger’s car are decorated to the hilt and furnished with cozy seats to make your journey fabulous. Along the way enjoy a catered continental breakfast. The changing scenery outside will compete for your attention on board the train as oompah-pah bands, jazz bands, carolers, shifty sailors, magicians and Santa strolls through the aisles. Near the 4000 foot summit, the train transits the Cascade Tunnel—the second longest in North America and enters into a winter wonderland with ski slopes and ice-choked rivers. At approximately 12:30pm, the train rolls to a stop in Leavenworth.
Upon arrival in Leavenworth, the fun continues in the streets of this Bavarian mountain town that’s dressed to look and feel, as The New York Times wrote, “a bit like the interior of a snow globe.” We’ll take in the season and roam around this “perfect place to spark the holiday spirit,” where horse-drawn carriages glide down the roads, carolers stroll, and vendors sell delicious holiday fare. Later, we’ll gather for the highlight of the day: In one truly magical moment, the entire town will become illuminated in a synchronized display that rivals the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting (and a whole lot more charming). After re-board the train where dinner, more entertainment and our fabulous staff awaits to make your Christmas wishes come true.
