Snowflake Lane

Snowflake Lane at the Bellevue Collection.  Great energy…15 minutes of holiday joy…snowflakes fall, music, winter costumes with warm greetings, toy soldiers giving it their all, and when it isn’t raining…it really hits the mark.  Make it an annual outing… or consider it every other year and you just might appreciate it even more.   Visit nightly through December 24th at 7 pm…then December 26th thru December 31st…check out Celebration Lane.   Also to enjoy in downtown Bellevue…the decor and ambiance of The Bravern.  http://www.magicseason.com/events/snowflake.html
