The festivities kick off at 7 p.m. with holiday music, costumed characters, and a parade featuring Santa in his sleigh.
The parade begins near the Bellevue Place and Lincoln Square sky bridge, marches past Macy’s along Bellevue Way NE, and then turns back toward the Hyatt Regency Bellevue. Find a place along NE 8th Street or Bellevue Way NE to view the parade.
After the parade, walk to Bellevue Place to see Santa light a 30-foot holiday tree in the winter garden. Families can enjoy cookies and cocoa while taking pictures with Snowflake Lane characters.
Parking is available at the Bellevue Place parking garage, off NE 10th Street.
