Bellaire comes alive for the holiday season with the annual Light Up the Night and Soup Cook-Off celebration on Saturday December 3rd!

The Soup-Cook-Off is the highlight of the event! Tickets are $15 and typically sells out so get them while you can! Tickets go on sale November 5th at the Bellaire Holiday Gift Fair. The remaining tickets will be available at the Chamber Office during office hours and participating downtown businesses till they sell out . Contact the Bellaire Chamber for tickets and more information. 

Even if you can’t snag a soup ticket you can still celebrate with family and friends with a day full of free Holiday Events. From a 5k Elf Run, kid’s movie at the Theatre, downtown scavenger hunt, and ornament making at The Grand Victorian. Enjoy the community Tree Lighting, Caroling, and a Live Nativity, and then visit with Santa after the “Parade of Lights. This is truly a family-friendly event.

Between all that fun…stop into the amazing shops who will be open all day to help you complete or begin your Christmas Shopping! Then relax or grab food and drinks at the many Coffee Shops, Restaurants, and Craft Beverage establishments
