The "Olympia Friends, Wine and Beer" Meet-Up group is arranging a bus trip to Leavenworth for the day.
Angelo, the organizer, said I could post this for our group and that we could join them. You can sign up over there, as well as here so we know who all from our group is going.
It will be a great day!!!
Here is the info:
Oktoberfest in Leavenworth is the next best thing to being in Munich! There is mouthwatering food and beer. (oh yeah and did we say "beer"?). Wine tasting is also available. Just dont tell anyone there you are not drinking beer!
Plan on checking out music from our own Musikkapelle Leavenworth who will be joined by other musical groups from the US and Germany.
Germany's Oktoberfest began in Munich in 1810, as a celebration of Prince Ludwig l married to Princess Therese from Saxony-Hildburghausen. It all began as a wedding feast on the outskirts of Munich where the guest ate, drank and celebrated. It was such a success that it became an annual tradition now enjoyed by more than 10 million people per year.
Tickets are $40.00 and the link to buy tickets will be posted soon.
The luxury motorcoaches are equipped with restroom, DVD player, PA system, A/C, large luggage bays, reading lights & vents and more.
Attn: South South sounders the bus will start out in Lacey at the Martin Way Park and Ride. Be there by 1130am !
We will leave Leavenworth at 9pm returning to Tacoma around midnight.
