Bellaire comes alive for the holiday season in the 8th Annual Light Up the Night and Soup Cook-Off celebration on December 2nd, 2017 starting downtown from noon until 7 pm.

Celebrate with family and friends with a day full of Holiday Events. From a free kid’s movie, ornament making to the annual “Soup Cook-Off” with 10+ participating restaurants, a visit with Santa after the “Parade of Lights.” Don’t forget the community Tree Lighting, Caroling and a live Nativity; this is truly a family friendly event.

Purchase tickets for the Soup Cook-Off for $5/each to sample soups from 10+ area restaurants (600 tickets available- available November 4). Last year’s winner was Pelican’s Nest with their Cream of Mushroom soup. The Cook-Off will run from 4:30 – 7 pm.
Other great events during the day include Holiday Pop Up Gift Show from 9-1 at the Commission on Aging.
