March is the perfect time to play along historic Fairfield Avenue with these three Bellevue Renaissance events:
Shop Bellevue! – Start the Madness on Friday, March 6 beginning at 5 pm. Steve and Curt from Interior Visions are leading the Start the Madness event. All correctly completed entries will be entered into a drawing for $50 in Bellevue Bucks (Avenue gift certificates).
Enjoy an NCAA themed scavenger hunt – Find a photograph of a well-known coach in each participating shop and match it to their name and team. Plus, many of the participating businesses will have specials for patrons wearing their favorite team’s colors.
Winter Carnival – Saturday, March 7 from noon to 4 pm
Join Anna and Elsa from Disney’s megahit “Frozen” along with magician Paul Presto, balloon artist Greg Wilson and other kid friendly events like face painting, cookie decorating, and winter-themed games with prizes. This event is generously sponsored by Citizens Bank of Northern Kentucky and Cleves and Lonnemann Jewelers.
Third Saturday Celebration – The Power of the Purple Ribbon Scavenger Hunt on Saturday, March 21 from 11 am to 3 pm
Walk the Avenue for “EMA” and “SARAH” as you complete the scavenger hunt to win a gift basket and help raise awareness and funds to protect older adults. This event is hosted Northern Kentucky Elder Maltreatment Alliance (EMA) and for the Alliance’s program SARAH (Shelter, Advocating, Removing and Housing).
Bellevue Renaissance also wants to emphasize the negative impact the weather has had on small businesses. You’re buying habits can make the difference. Supporting retail/dining events like these and shopping locally-owned independent businesses helps ensure we will continue to have an eclectic variety of business that reinvest in our community and provide the character that cannot be found in mass retailers.
