Snowflake Lane Features More Cast!

Snowflake Lane Producer Greg Thompson will be taking advantage of last season’s new expanded parade route on Bellevue Way this holiday season by featuring the Snowflake Lane Drummers, Dancers and Color Guard to a much greater degree than in the previous 13 years of the holiday event. 

The nearly mile-long loop from Northeast Fourth Street to Northeast Eighth Street will feature 16 colorful holiday floats and more than 250 performers during the 32 days this season.

Greg plans to put the 50 drummers in the parade itself, allowing them to perform “up close and personal” with the crowds on the sidewalks and will alternate the 50 dancing Jingle Belles with the 42 Snow Flurries Color Guard down the center of Northeast Eighth Street, giving them plenty of room to ring in the holidays.
