Bellevue Christmas & Holiday Events
Bellevue Snowflake Lane, Ice Skating & Magic Season
November 23, 2018 - January 13, 2019
Bellevue is getting a little more festive this Christmas as The Bravern joins the Bellevue Magic Season with a special holiday lighting event. Santa will also make an appearance at the event to spread holiday cheer to children of all ages, making his much-anticipated arrival to The Bravern in a luxury Rolls Royce. The evening will conclude with the official, full-property lighting ceremony of seasonal fixtures and decor. Shops will remain open until 8pm the day of the event for holiday shopping and in-store activations.
Experience the holiday magic with the annual celebration of Snowflake Lane along the sidewalks of Bellevue Way & NE 8th at The Bellevue Collection, in the heart of Downtown Bellevue. Magical snow falls nightly as live toy soldiers and winter characters, music, and a dazzling light show brighten the night and warm your heart.
The beloved Bellevue holiday tradition draws up to 10,000 spectators each night to downtown, earning Bellevue the title of The Most Festive Town in America by The Huffington Post.
