A celebration of school, community services, and our area's rich blueberry harvest, the sixth annual Lake Hills Blueberry Festival, will be Saturday, Sept. 7, at Lake Hills Elementary School.
The back-to-school party takes place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the school, 14310 SE 12th St. It will be an opportunity for local families to have fun and learn about Wrap-Around Services, a collaboration of the city, Bellevue School District, United Way and East Bellevue Community Council to support youth and families.
The event will feature a barbecue and free family activities, including:
- Live music, games, arts, crafts, face painting and a visit from "Beny the Balloon Guy";
- Assistance and information about a variety of human services programs from local service providers;
- Visits from Bellevue firefighters and police; and
- "Blueberry Lane," where art, produce and blueberry pie will be available for purchase.
In addition, Lake Hills Elementary School teachers will be available from 10:45 to 11:30 a.m. to meet with students and their families.
Visitors are also encouraged to take a short walk to the neighboring Jubilee REACH Center (14200 SE 13th Place) to shop a yard sale and participate in family fun.
Parking is limited, so walking, bicycling, busing or carpooling is encouraged. The event is sponsored by Wrap-Around Services in partnership with Lake Hills Neighborhood Association, and Jubilee REACH Center.
