Once you’ve gotten your fill of turkey and gravy, it’s time to don the ugly Christmas sweaters, deck the halls, and hang the stockings by the fire.
Bellevue also is ready to celebrate the holiday with its 21st annual Bellevue Magic Season Snowflake Lane which kicks off this Friday and runs nightly at 7 p.m. through Christmas Eve.
Following the opening night parade, guests also will be treated to the lighting of the 30-foot tree at the Bellevue Place Wintergarden with Jolly Saint Nick, himself. Attendees will also have the opportunity to have the photo taken with Santa and other Snowflake Lane Characters, enjoy hot chocolate and candy canes at Fonte Coffee, or visit Suite Restaurant and Lounge for piping hot butternut squash soup.
The nightly holiday parade has been expanded to run the entire distance between Northeast Fourth Street and Northeast Eighth Street to accommodate more spectators. For this reason, Bellevue visitors should expected increased traffic congestion in the downtown area as people gather for the festivities.
