Living in the Pacific Northwest brings a lot of fun year round events full of music, traditions and fun for the entire family. The winters up here bring snow to the numerous mountains making the Cascades a beautiful backdrop to many towns all season. From Santa Trains in Mt Rainier to Snowflake Lane in Bellevue, these are traditions many families repeat each year. This year we started a new tradition and with my parents, brother, sisters and nephews we all spent an evening in Bellevue Square so the kids can experience the Snowflake Lane show.
At 7pm during the Holidays, the road is closed for an hour in Bellevue Square and the streets fill with crowds as far as you can see each direction and in the skywalk over head with families ready for an entertaining and interactive show.
Characters are up and down the crowds interacting with people, bands play up and down the sidewalk, street and through the skywalk. In the street there are multiple performances from bands, dancers and other entertainers as you enjoy the music of the holidays. About halfway into the show, cue snow! These ‘suds’ or snow fall up and down the lane and the kids go nuts!
Snowflake Lane is a well known family event worth the drive to the Eastside in the Seattle area. Typically you want to get there in plenty of time to find parking and grab some dinner. We all met at the Cheesecake Factory for dinner, wandered through shops and near the start of the show, found a spot to stand along the lane. You are outside of the mall so there is plenty of shopping you can do and make a day of it.
The boys were so thrilled the entire show and we will have to make this a yearly event. I am just sad I waited so long to experience Snowflake Lane with my son. http://snowflakelane.com/
