8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Bellaire comes alive for the holiday season in the 6th Annual Light Up the Night and Soup Cook-Off celebration on December 5th, 2015, starting at noon and continuing until 7 pm

Celebrate with family and friends with a day full of Holiday Events. From a free kids movie and ornament-making to the annual “Soup Cook-Off”, a visit with Santa after the “Parade of Lights” and Tree Lighting, Community Caroling and a live Nativity, this is truly a family-friendly event. 

Purchase tickets for the Soup Cook-Off for $5/each – this entitles you to sample soups from eight area restaurants (500 tickets available). Last year’s winner was The Pelican Nest with their Dill Pickle Soup, and the runner-up was Short’s Brewing Company with their Potato Soup Bar. 

Bellaire is in Antrim County on M-88 between Lake Bellaire and Intermediate Lake.
