It’s beginning to look like Christmas on the Avenue

By Mark Shuller - Email

BELLEVUE, KY (FOX19) – Bellevue Renaissance is creating reasons to visit historic Fairfield Avenue during the holiday shopping season.

You'll find the charm of a Courier and Ives painting, festiveness of holiday events, and hipness of an exciting array of restaurants and shops. Bellevue Renaissance also wants to let people know shopping habits make a difference – money spent with locally owned businesses reinvests as much as three times more than purchases made at big box stores. Plus, they create community vitality and offer merchandise, character and service you're not going to find in the chain stores.

On December 5th from 6 to 9 pm, Bellevue Renaissance hosts their monthly first Friday Shop Bellevue! event: Your Home for the Holidays.  Warm receptions and Shop Bellevue! specials will be featured for an evening of shopping and dining.  It's a perfect way to celebrate the holidays with friends and family and even get some gift shopping done. 

On December 11th from 4 to 8 pm many of the businesses are hosting Customer Appreciation Parties in conjunction with the Bellevue Neighborhood Association's Holiday on the Hill tour of homes. Visitors will find evening that sparkles with parties, holiday décor and delightful shopping and dining.  Also, on this evening Bellevue Renaissance will be found at the Yelp Shops Local Pledge event at the American Sign Museum. 

Due to popular demand the Fairfield Avenue Christmas Walk is extended to two days – Friday, November 26 and Saturday, November 27 from 11 am to 6 pm.  Businesses host open houses with holiday treats for shoppers and provide an opportunity to submit an entry to win one of over thirty door prizes ranging from diamond earrings to $25 gift certificates. The Christmas Walk lives up to its tag line – "putting the happy back into the holidays" by making shopping and dining festive and fun. 

To assist parents, babysitting service is offered to visitors on Friday, November 26 from noon to 4 pm at Holy Trinity School located at 235 Division Street at the corner of Taylor Avenue and Division Street. Contact Amanda at 859-468-8360 to make a reservation.  Services are free with a $20 in purchases from participating businesses that day.  Donations will be appreciated and a fee of $10 an hour per child without a qualifying purchase.  Pasquale's will provide food and volunteers from Holy Trinity will have activities and crafts for the children.  

Many Fairfield Avenue businesses are extending their hours for the convenience of visitors. A listing of businesses and their holiday hours and specials are available at www.shopbellevueky.com.
