Fall festivals: Great fun for foodies, wine-lovers

The great thing about the fall season 1here in the Pacific Northwest is the amazing variety of festivals and fall events. Summer's long gone, the kids are back in school, but the weather's still decent and people still want to get out and travel during the fall months.

Northwest communities go out of their way to squeeze a lot of great events into a few fall weekends. Here is a look at some of the more popular events -- as well as the more unique opportunities to get out and do something different.

The Leavenworth Octoberfest is one of the biggest festivals in the Pacific Northwest and especially beautiful because visitors get to sample mountain scenery in the fall.

The famous Bavarian Village of Leavenworth always comes alive with the many visitors who make it a point to take in Octoberfest each year. This year it's going to be held three weekends in a row starting on September 30.

You'll want to book your lodging early, which always fills up fast. If you can't find something in Leavenworth, Wenatchee is just an easy 25-minute drive and also features many visitor services and attractions of its own. Once you get settled in for the festival, you'll find there is free transportation in Leavenworth to get you around to the various beer halls, arts and crafts exhibits and other attractions that make Leavenworth so memorable.

There is lots of good German food available in Leavenworth, all served up in the European atmosphere of the Bavarian Village. It seems that nearly every restaurant has some kind of bratwurst for sale, or you might want to visit one of the outdoor beer gardens to German beer and the best bratwurst this side of Munich.
