At events this weekend in Bellevue, you can feel the warmth, stay cool or both.
First, the warmth
Warm your heart and find that perfect Valentine’s Day gift for someone special at Friday’s IN VUE shopping event.
“We’re Showing the Love” is the theme of this month’s event on Friday, February 3, starting at 5 p.m. along Fairfield Avenue, blocks 200 to 600.
For traditional shoppers, the Avenue boasts two candy stores and a fine jewelry store. For those wanting to surprise, choose from spa days, clothing, gift certificates and many thoughtful gifts available in the shops.
The Packhouse food truck will be at Darkness Brewing at 6 p.m. to warm your tummy, too.
This event is a Shopper’s Reward Night. If you have a purple IN VUE bag, bring it along for some extra treats.
February is a two-fer month with IN VUE. Watch for details about a Winter Carnival event February 18. For more info, go to the Shop Bellevue website.
Music to warm the soul
Whatever the weather outside, it’ll be nice and warm at the Music on the Avenue event Friday night at 8 p.m. at St. John’s United Church of Christ, 520 Fairfield Avenue in Bellevue.
The Cincinnati Children’s choir kicks off the popular vocal music series. The ensemble in residence at the University of Cincinnati’s College Conservatory of Music (CCM), they will perform traditional, classical and folk music. Enjoy the warmth of company at a reception for music lovers following the show.
Cool off with a big splash
Saturday morning will be down right icy at Joe’s Crab Shack for the Polar Plunge. Brave souls from across the area will jump into the cold brink to help raise money and support for Special Olympics athletes.
Opening ceremonies are at 11 a.m. and the plunge starts at 11:30 a.m. Celebrate after the event with food and refreshments at the Post Plunge Bash.
