Christmas Lights: Bellevue Botanical Gardens
Last week, on a whim, I visited the Bellevue Botanical Garden Christmas Lights. I’ve been to a few of these before. It’s always very nice but I have never seen anything like this. Volunteers spent nearly 10,000 hours putting these lights together. It took that long because the light flowers are handmade. In the spring time, Bellevue Botanical Garden holds a class to learn how to make these flowers.
We went on a free night but we donated anyway. After hearing about how hard 30+ volunteers worked in a few weeks, I’m glad we did.
I loved the Scarecrow in the pumpkin, strawberry, and corn patch though the main attraction was the dragon. Too cool, man! Plus they have an AWESOME barista there who made me an excellent mocha.
Few Things to Remember: Right now, Starbucks is passing out coupons: Two for one visits to the Space Needle. Cal Anderson has an ice skating rink that sounds AWESOME! Lincoln Square in downtown Bellevue has a snow parade at 7pm every week night with a snow princess, Frosty the Snowman, a penguin, Rudolph and drummer boys and girls.
