All Hallows’ Eve approaches, and there are several events and activities available for all ages when Halloween comes on Sunday the 31st.
Trick-or-Treating in Old Bellevue
Family-friendly activities include Trick-or-Treating in Old Bellevue, where over a dozen shops and restaurants along the corridor, on 103rd Ave and Main Street, will be handing out sweet treats.
