Community pride is apparent as you drive through the well maintained historic homes or visit the newly renovated Washington Park. This community believes and strives to make Bellevue “a great place to live, work, play and raise a family”.

A commuter community for many that work in the Lansing or Battle Creek areas, Bellevue offers more; and is actively pursuing growth in the business district as well as supporting events and community programs that give a solid foundation to the area.

Some of the unique programs and events include:

Community Pride Day – a day in which residents can request help from high school student volunteers for their time and labor and a chance for them to give back to the neighborhood.

Memorial Day Parade – the community commemorates with a brief salute at the Bridge to the Navy, Coast Guard, and Merchant seamen and progresses to the cemetery for other memorial presentations.

Car, Truck & Motorcycle Show and Street Dance, Fireworks, Farmers Market, Antique Tractor & Engine Show, Christmas Parade and Family Night with Santa and other community led activities.

And during your color tour of Michigan in fall, don’t miss the “Fly-In” of the Sandhill Cranes at the CraneFest ! The Sandhill Crane is the largest bird in Michigan. Their prehistoric crys announce their arrival by the thousands at Big Marsh Lake and 900 acre Baker Sanctuary. This festival opens the Kiwanis Youth Area to the public for two days in early October with vendors, educational events and nature trails.

The Downtown Development Authority is working towards an aggressive master plan of revitalization of the central business district improve the value of calling Bellevue your home town. I encourage you to visit their website at www.BellevueMI.net and stay up to date on the events and happenings in the area as there is so  much more to Bellevue Michigan!
