Holiday Lights

This season, Downtown Bellevue will be illuminated in more holiday lights than ever before. Walk or drive among thousands of sparkling bulbs throughout the city. If you're planning to walk in Downtown Belleuve, please remember to wear your mask and to socially distance.

Here are the places to experience the outdoor lights in Downtown:

Downtown Park

Nov. 26 - Jan. 4 from 7am-11pm
For the first time ever, the entire half-mile loop of the Bellevue Downtown Park will be illuminated. As part of the Heart of Bellevue's Season of Cheer campaign presented by Symetra, 2,100+ bulbs will delight all ages and line the perimeter of the park's walking circle. Lights are themed and programmed, so colors will vary each day and even by the hour.   

Snowflake Lane on Bellevue Way

Nov. 27 - Dec. 24, 5-9pm
Walk or drive through The Bellevue Collection's re-imagined Snowflake Lane along Bellevue Way. Between 5-9pm, lights will illuminate surrounding buildings, along with music and occasional snowfall. Due to safety restrictions, there will be no parades this year. After Dec. 24, lights will still line Bellevue Way into 2021, lit all-hours. Learn more
