5 Fall Festivals Worth Visiting On Assignment
Fall is almost here, and as the leaves start falling and the air gets crisper, fall festivals pop up across the country. No matter where you traveling, there's bound to be fun fall festivals to discover. If you're planning your next travel nursing assignment or looking for one in your current city, keep these festivals in mind!
1. The Washington State Fair
Puyallup is located at the foot of beautiful Mount Rainier in the Puget Sound area, ten miles east of Tacoma and 35 miles south of Seattle. It is known for delicious local restaurants, unique downtown antique district, reputable school district, parks and recreation -- and is home to the Washington State Fair! This annual fair features a live concert series, a rodeo, talent contests, an equestrian stunt show, farm animals, rides, daily shows, art shopping, and more. With so much to do, it's no wonder that fair spans just over three weeks. There's still time to check it out. The Washington State Fair is going strong through September 23rd!
2. Leavenworth Oktoberfest
Washington is home to another great festival we can't help but mention. If you love Oktoberfest, Leavenworth is definitely worth checking out. Hear bands from the U.S., Canada and Germany, enjoy homemade bratwursts, barbecued ribs, giant turkey legs, and craft beer. Be sure to visit the many vendor booths and shop for crafts and German souvenirs to bring back.
The weekend opening ceremony begins Bavarian procession followed by a keg tapping. Enjoy Leavenworth Oktoberfest three weekends this fall on October 5-6, 12-13, and 19-20.
