Leavenworth Tree-lighting Trip
What has snow, holiday festivities, and German food all in one place? LEAVENWORTH!

Around 6pm, the town turns off all the lights and a countdown begins… 3, 2, 1 BOOM. The village and park transforms into a magical wonderland of lights and fireworks!

Daylight Saving Time is Ending!
Don’t forget to set your clocks 1 hour back this Saturday night!
Daylight Saving Time is also called “summer time”. It is a way to artificially expand the daylight hours during the summer months.
Clocks are set back one hour on November 4th (Sunday) at 12:00 A.M. So, you should set your clocks 1 hour back before you go to bed on Saturday night. For example, if it is 9:00 pm now, it should be changed to 8:00 pm.
★ It is easy to remember – Spring forward (add 1 hour), Fall back (deduct 1 hour)!
