The holidays are on their way with plenty of classic seasonal celebrations to look forward to like Magic in the Market and Winterfest. Also returning this season is Bellevue’s beloved 31-night Snowflake Lane, a nightly celebration of holiday cheer.

Beginning on Friday, November 24th, onlookers can experience the wonder of Snowflake Lane through an array of dazzling lights, and festive music in Bellevue’s complimentary nightly parade of holiday floats. You’re invited to line the sidewalks between Bellevue Square and Lincoln Square from NE 4th to NE 8th Streets every night at 7 PM.

The world of Snowflake Lane is brought to life by over 200 performers like toy soldiers and snow princesses, thousands of twinkling lights, festive floats, and tons of snow from snow machines.

Besides the stunning nightly parade, on Friday, November 24th you can also enjoy a tree-lighting ceremony. You’ll get to watch as Santa counts down to the lighting of a 30-foot holiday tree, “complete with music, cocoa, and cookies.” If you miss the official lighting ceremony you can still view the tree and all its glory at the Bellevue Place Wintergarden.

You can also visit the Snowflake Lane Factory for photos with Santa although keep in mind you need to make reservations beforehand.

Enjoy this timeless holiday tradition!
