Bellevue Washington is the fifth largest city in Washington, with a population of about 120,000. It is the high-tech and retail center of the Eastside, with more than 130,000 jobs and a skyline of gleaming high-rises.
Sales at local shopping complexes such as Bellevue Square
are always an attraction, but a strawberry festival and an arts and crafts fair each draw thousands each year. During the holiday season, the Garden d'Lights display at the Bellevue Botanical Garden
attracts visitors from far and wide. Artists from around the country enter striking new works in the biennial Bellevue Sculpture Exhibition
Every July 4, thousands from around the region converge on the Downtown Park for the Family 4th event, where the Bellevue Philharmonic performs live in support of the fireworks display. Bellevue's agrarian traditions are celebrated in the spring and fall at popular fairs at the Kelsey Creek Farm Park.
