About 250 summer campers, staff from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue and members of the Bellevue Police Department will participate in the club’s annual Kids Parade at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday Aug. 22.

Festive balloons, cowbells, pompoms and a swarm of blue will spill out onto Main Street, Fourth Avenue and Bellevue Square Mall in celebration of Bellevue’s support of the club and the police force. The parade route consists of three groups—Group 1 will travel through Bellevue Square Mall; Group 2 will travel down Fourth Avenue between 100th and Bellevue Way; and Group 3 will travel south on 100th turning east on Main Street. The three groups will convene at Bellevue Park for a short celebration with healthy snacks provided by McDonalds. The club welcomes the entire community of Bellevue to join in on the festivities and to support the club and our local Bellevue Police Department.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue’s mission is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens. Established in 1952, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue is the largest youth services provider on the eastside, serving 11,000 young people annually from 13 club sites located throughout Bellevue.

The Bellevue Police Department’s mission is to provide a safe place to live, work, and visit through quality law enforcement practices delivered by dedicated professionals. They said they focus their efforts and resources to reduce crime, reduce the fear of crime, and enhance the quality of life for all who call Bellevue home. Their guiding principles include respect, integrity, accountability and service.
