Event Details

Date: Saturday, December 4th, 2021

Time: 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Street Closure: The streets will be closed from Balph to Jackson from 4:00PM – 10:00 PM.

Children’s Activities: There will be opportunities for children to participate in activities throughout the evening which will encourage families to shop along Lincoln Avenue. We are looking for businesses who would be interested in sponsoring and/or hosting an activity, craft, snack, etc. This could include ornament making, decorating cookies, a hot cocoa bar, paper wreaths, and more! We invite you as a local business — either off Lincoln or on — to partner with us and highlight your business by hosting an activity. We’re even happy to help with the planning and ideas!

The children’s train will be back on Lincoln, near Hawley – a holiday favorite!!!

Holiday Market: Get holiday shoppers in your doors early!! Bellevue businesses are encouraged to extend their hours and/or offer specials during Light Up Bellevue! to allow for holiday shopping. Local and regional vendors will be set up on Lincoln Avenue between Balph and Hawley (for those outside of the event area).

Restaurants: Feed those hungry people during the festivities! We’re looking for local restaurants that would like to be featured as food vendors during the event. Local restaurants are encouraged to set up sidewalk sales or offer specials. For restaurants located outside of the event area who want to be closer to the action, we will have a section set aside by Jackson specifically for food vendors and invite restaurants to set up tables and sell their items. Let us know if you’d like to be a part!
