Santa and Jacksons

anta with Sidney and Ian Jackson

With great weather being a factor, Bellevue’s main street was awash with families and visitors from all over the North Boroughs. Cookies and Hot Chocolate ran out and there was a long line waiting for a ride in the horse drawn carriage. Santa arrived on time with the Northgate Band leading the Bellevue fire truck. Christ the King Church Choir lead off the activities in the Central Business District. Marimosa Theatre followed with beautiful holiday songs. All of this was made possible because of the following volunteers and donors:

Bellevue Fire Department – Bellevue Police Department – Bellevue Public Works Department – Bellevue Initiative for Growth and Revitalization – Christ the King Church Choir – Courtney Kolenta Youth Christmas Concert – Dari-Villa Restaurant – Dr Lisa Nath – Dunkin’ Donuts – Dietz Floral – Eat N’ Park – Ed and Kate Dietz – Goosehead Insurance – Home Depot – Joe’s Rusty Nail – Lawrence T.
