Snowflake Lane

Now through December 24, be sure to grab your friends and family and take a stroll down Snowflake Lane at The Bellevue Collection. This magical avenue in downtown Bellevue features a nightly holiday spectacle complete with snowfall, jingle bell dancers, drumming toy soldiers, snow princesses and fairies, music and a dazzling light show. We suggest making a night of it starting with dinner or happy hour at one of Bellevue’s many downtown dining options followed by some holiday shopping at The Bellevue Collection’s over 250 stores.

Snowflake Lane takes place every night at 7pm now through December 24. The fun continues even after Christmas (December 26 – 31) with Celebration Lane at The Bellevue Collection. For more information about Snowflake Lane, visit the event website by clicking here.

Marvel at the display of remarkable gingerbread “houses” made by local architecture firms, bakeries, and businesses. Be sure to bring the kids to the family gingerbread workshops taking place December 12- 15 and try your hand at building your own gingerbread masterpiece.
