The Bellevue Picnic is the longest and most celebrated tradition in Bellevue. The picnic was started in 1978 by D.E. Ryan and the 42nd annual picnic was held on May 18th, 2019. While the picnic has grown and changed over the years, the mission is still the same – a celebration of Bellevue.
In the spring of 2019, we spent an afternoon Mr. Ryan as he shared photos and clippings from his scrapbook. Below are photos from mostly 1979 & 1980, along with photos from later years. We hope you enjoy looking through them as much as we did!
