Christmas magic will soon be in the air in Bellevue. The 17th annual Snowflake Lane is returning nightly at the Bellevue Collection starting this Friday, November 26th. You’ll be able to watch as the sidewalks fill with people hoping to catch a glimpse of this unique PNW holiday tradition.

If you’ve never attended Snowflake Lane before, it takes place nightly at 7 pm throughout the holiday season. Spectators gather on the sidewalks between Bellevue Square and Lincoln Square from NE 4th to NE 8th to watch as Bellevue slips away and is replaced with a winter wonderland. Expect to see falling snow, dazzling lights, festive music, toy drummers, and dancers.

While the parade is the star of the two you can also snap pics with Santa Claus at the Snowflake Lane Factory! Folks looking to grab pics can head to the second level of Bellevue Square Center Court to pose for a contactless photo with Santa. He’ll be making his list and checking it twice at his desk so be sure to be on your best behavior.
