Here you will find monthly postings about current events taking place throughout the city of Bellevue Kentucky. If you live in the Greater Cincinnati area, we encourage you to follow us. Bellevue hosts free public events every month - from First Fridays, to Family Movie Nights in the park, to annual hits like September's "Bellevue Art in the Park". There is always something to do in Bellevue! Visit the Shop Bellevue official website at www.shopbellevueky.com.
This is the official welcoming of the holiday shopping season along historic Fairfield Avenue, where shoppers will escape the Black Friday frenzy on November 27th to opt for Christmas cheer in Bellevue. Stroll the Avenue, visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus, enjoy holiday nibbles and sips at each of the businesses while shopping for the perfect gifts for everyone on your shopping list.
On Small Business Saturday November 28th, thrill the kids with Santa's arrival at 11 am at 318 Fairfield Avenue on an antique Bellevue fire truck, thanks to Tom Rechtin, Sr.!
In addition to holiday treats, delicious food, and terrific shopping, the In Vue businesses are sweetening both days with chances to win loads of prizes, each worth a minimum of $25, and a Grand Prize of a dazzling emerald and diamond ring valued at $800 from Cleves and Lonnemann Jewelers! The more participating businesses you visit each day, the more chances you have to win!
Check out the window of Cleves and Lonnemann Jewelers to see all the awesome prizes from the businesses listed below - one or more of them may be yours!
On Friday we hope to fill "The Avenue" with the beauty of thanks from all our friends. Pick up a leaf at a participating business, write down what you are most thankful for this holiday season and add it to our Giving-Thanks Trees. We want the Avenue to be aflutter with leaves of blessings!
Want to give thanks by offering assistance to others that may not have a meal or toiletries for their family? Bringing non-perishable food and personal care items to Shop Bellevue! to donate will help fill the St. Bernard food pantry in Dayton, KY. See below for specials being offered for your donations.
We're hosting our 2nd Hoodies for the Emergency Cold Shelter! Donate a new or gently-used sweatshirt or hoodie anytime November 6 or 7 and receive 10% off your total purchase that day (not valid with any other offers - some restrictions apply). Let's keep those that need our help warm this winter.
