Bellevue turns out quite a celebratory Americana Christmas parade when Bellevue Way between NE 4th and NE 8th Streets turns into a snowing fantasy world complete with music, dancers, floats and festive lightning! This free showstopper features flurries of snowflakes falling all through the sky every night from 7:00pm-7:30pm through Christmas Eve! Come early (we arrived at 6:30pm) to stake a spot on the sidewalk, feel the anticipation and be greeted by parade members handing out candy and welcoming guests to Snowflake Lane!
Oh, we left Lake home with Nana and made it a date, but I have the feeling Lake would have been mind-blowingly amazed. Especially by the giant stuffed twing twings (penguins). Snowflake Lane, Bellevue, Bellevue Square, thank you!, I sense a new tradition coming on.
