Bellaire (Houston) Texas Holiday in the Park
By: Matt Stanley, Realtor, Broker, Keller Williams Realty
You won’t want to miss this year’s annual Bellaire Holiday in the Park celebration! It will take place on Thursday, December 2, 2010, from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the Bellaire Town Square at 7008 S. Rice. This family event is the perfect way to kick off the holiday season and no matter what the weather is like outside, you’ll find yourself swept away to a winter wonderland, no joke!
Snow is brought in by the truckloads to make a couple of snow play areas as well as a snow slide. With the areas split by age groups, even the youngest of snow bunnies can run around and have fun in the snow. My son loved throwing snowballs at me and our pictures would make you think we were far from Texas! How often do we get to see snow in Bellaire??
Santa makes a grand appearance, usually arriving on the biggest sleigh of all – a Bellaire fire truck. He stays on hand for pictures and to listen to children’s holiday wishes. So bring your camera, or you can purchase your picture from the professional photographer. The holiday music from a variety of bands and choirs will surely play all of your favorite holiday tunes and have your toes tapping. And, come with an appetite because you can have your dinner in the park with several great food options from local restaurants.
We think this may be our year to tackle the big snow slide and we have no doubt that the holiday train ride will again be at the top of our list of things to do. What a great chance to bundle up and visit with friends and neighbors. This is just one of the many activities that helps Bellaire maintain that small town feel and makes it a great place raise a family. It’s hard to imagine a better place to live or a better way to get into the holiday spirit than Bellaire Holiday in the Park!
