Oktoberfest 2014 has come to an end. It was a whirlwind month for us! We gave a LOT of carriage rides and Hans ate a LOT of bratwurst :) !
HC Andersen Carriage Company was thrilled to take part in the 2014 Autumn Leaf Festival. It is fitting that this was our first parade, as this was the town's first big celebration in 1964 when they adopted the Bavarian theme that so many enjoy today. The Autumn Leaf Festival celebrates the turning colors of the Autumn Leaves and draws thousands of spectators each year. We were so honored to be asked by the Leavenworth Chamber of Commerce to give Santa, Mrs. Claus and Father Christmas a ride through town in the parade.
