Santa comes to town!
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!
