"Waterlogged" might have been a more appropriate title for the movie selected for Bellevue's first Screen on the Green movie night May 30 at Red Caboose Park instead of the Disney favorite "Frozen." However, it was the story of Anna and Elsa that pulled in young ones and the young at heart to fill Bellevue's neighborhood park.
The event kicked off at 6:p.m. when three food trucks pulled in and a handful of other booths went up: Mix 92.9, popcorn, stickers and tattoos, and a birthday party. However, the longest line by far stretched across the park for photos with live Anna and Elsa.
Let Them Eat Cheese
One food truck left early due to mechanical failure, so the Dawg Daze hot dog vendor was busy -- so busy he ran out of chili and had to put cheese alone on chili-less cheese dogs and chili-less cheese fries. He appeared to be charging full price even with the disappointing lack of chili. The Greek dog was good but the fries were already cold and hard when they handed me the box.
Rain, Rain, Go Away
About an hour into the event it began raining--not hard, but hard enough to add a layer of dampness to everything, and while it would stop for a little while, the rain soon picked up again. Many were leaving before the movie even started, although quite a few were prepared with umbrellas and simply blocked the view of those behind them by raising the umbrellas.
Sponsored by Bellevue's Hope Park Church (formerly BCC), the event was highly anticipated, and in spite of the rain, many a young one had a great time simply posing for a photo with Elsa and Anna.
