Light Up Night In Bellevue 2008

Santa arrived in Bellevue this year atop the Bellevue Ladder Truck. Quite a merry event with hot cocoa dispelling the chill and carolers strolling Lincoln Avenue singing with glee. Revelers were treated to the sounds of the Northgate Brass Ensemble performing traditional Christmas melodies. With Frosty, the Grinch, Ms Kitty and the elves in the mix, laughter filled the air. Santa heard requests from quite a few good little boys and girls and added all of them to his list. Many deserving thanks and accolades to the Borough of Bellevue for supporting the event with participation from the police and public works departments, the North Suburban Chamber of Commerce for organizing the event, the Bellevue Fire Company for reigning in Santa, to Santa for making the special trip to Bellevue, to the elves and all the characters for spreading the joy, to Ms. Sharon, storyteller extraordinaire, to the merchants who provided the hot cocoa, cookies and candy, to the businesses who were open late, and to the people who were present on Lincoln Avenue to Enjoy Bellevue for an evening with their families and friends. This is what it is all about, being alive, being a part of the community, sharing talents, gifts, and giving thanks for one another. It is the reason for the season! Share the JOY!
