A big Thank You to everyone who attended the 16th annual Somerset 4th of July Parade and Picnic! The weather cooperated and 600 hot dogs were served by the Somerset Community Association.
A special thank you to the Bellevue Police and Fire Departments for leading our parade again this year!
Another special Thank You to our grill team: Bellevue City Councilmember Janice Zahn, City Council candidates Paul Clark and Betsi Hummer. And the Somerset Rec Club team led by president Michael Ketchum! And also Thank You to City Council candidate Mo Malakoutian for helping with the prize drawing.
Thank you to all the wonderful Somerset volunteers who made this event happen.
July 2023 edition of Sector Watch, a brand new newsletter, created and distributed by Bellevue Police Department. It has information about all the patrol captains, news, and dates for three upcoming meet/greets with the sector captains. Check it out!
Mark your calendars now and save the date for Tuesday, July 4th for our 16th Annual Somerset Community Association Parade and Picnic in the Park. It’s a great day for neighbors to get together, have lots of fun and celebrate our country’s independence.
We will have prizes for the best costume (most traditional, most original, and most patriotically adorned family) and best decorated transport (bike, wagon, scooter).
We will gather beginning at 10:30am in the Somerset Rec Club lower parking lot at the corner of Somerset Boulevard and Somerset Drive (4445 Somerset Boulevard). The walking parade along Somerset Drive starts at 11:00am and the route is about 0.8 miles, ending at Forest Hill Neighborhood Park. As always, fire engine 104 and Bellevue Police will lead the parade and join our picnic. A great chance for the little ones to see a fire truck up close and high-five a policeman!
Then it will be time for BBQ hot dogs (including veggie dogs), chips, drinks, and dessert for all, hosted by the Somerset Community Association. We are planning for field games and other fun. Honey buckets with hand washing stations will be available at the park. Things will wrap up around 1:30pm, giving us plenty of time to rest up for the evening fireworks! The city is allowing bouncy houses again, so if all goes well this popular attraction will make a comeback!
After the event, please share your photos with email@example.com. Like every year, we will be publishing the best photos in our fall edition.
Please bring the entire family! This is a wonderful way to celebrate and honor this great country. Donations welcome. Hope to see you there! (Check Somerset98006.org for up-to-date information.)
Note: This event is only for Somerset residents and their guests.
