Weekly Photo Challenge: Gathering

This gathering happens six times every year, the first three weekends in December, in the town of Leavenworth, Washington.  Leavenworth is “Washington’s Bavarian Village”, and right at dusk on Friday and Saturday nights, the Tree Lighting happens.  Hundreds of visitors literally hold their breath, waiting for the switch that turns the town into a winter wonderland.  People come from all over the state, and foreign countries to watch this, and enjoy the beauty of Christmas, and the hospitality of Leavenworth.
