A Day Bus Trip to Leavenworth's IceFest
The 2011 Bavarian Ice Festival was a smashing success!  We're looking forward to even more fun in 2012... stay tuned for updates and listings
Bus leaves Tacoma @ 8am. Arrives in Leavenworth around 11am.
Leaves Leavenworth at 6pm arriving in Tacoma around 9pm.

Dancing in on the heels of Christmas is the Bavarian Ice Fest. Our village continues the celebration of winter with this annual playtime full of activities and events for all ages, and  hosted by the Leavenworth Chamber. Enjoy again our magical wonderland dressed in lights, with winter fun, games and fireworks.

A weekend grab bag of invigorating outdoor events includes snow sculpture, tug o' war, an ice cube scramble for kids six and under, the great Frisbee sweep, and Leavenworth's famous Smooshing Contest: a unique race peculiar to the Great Bavarian Ice Fest. The Smooshing contest is held on Front Street, with teams of four - their toes strapped to 8' long boards - trying to maneuver and glide down the street tandem-style.  A wonderful thing about Ice Fest is that you can cheer from the sidelines or jump right in and compete for prizes.
