Since 2005, Snowflake Lane has strived to be the region’s most festive free holiday show. Presented by The Bellevue Collection, it has become one of the Pacific Northwest’s favorite holiday traditions. The Snowflake Lane parade runs nightly from the day after Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve. Join the festivities every night on the sidewalks between Bellevue Square and Lincoln Square.
During the holiday parade, visitors experience the wonder of falling snow on Bellevue Way, along with dazzling lights, festive music, and a parade featuring toy drummers, dancers, and holiday floats.
Parking is free in any of the mall garages at Bellevue Square, Bellevue Place, and Lincoln Square. The show begins nightly at 7 pm, but plan to arrive early to allow time to park and then find a spot on the sidewalks of Bellevue Way to enjoy the show. More info: Parking – The Bellevue Collection
