The Holiday Magic of Snowflake Lane

Christmas Tree

It’s Snowflake Lane time again!

Now in its 11th season, this beloved holiday tradition will once again be featured for the two weeks leading up to Christmas Eve. Snowflake Lane takes place along the sidewalks of Bellevue Way and NE 8th at the Bellevue Connection and gladdens the hearts of entire families as they come out to enjoy some Christmas cheer.

Each 20-minute spectacular begins at 7 p.m. while magical snow falls nightly on the excited spectators. The parade features

  • An array of winter characters
  • Beautiful snow princesses
  • Live drummers
  • Toy soldiers

The Most Festive Town in America

The Huffington Post crowned Bellevue with this title, and our Snowflake Lane tradition is just one of the reasons!

This one event alone attracts nightly crowds of almost 10,000 while volunteers hand out lollipops and help our city to celebrate the season with a dazzling light show, along with holiday music to warm the heart. Most of the shops in the area stay open late, and everyone is encouraged to stop by to finish their Christmas shopping and grab a bite to eat. Make it a family affair.
