Community Development

The mission of the community development department is to promote a sense of community within Bel Aire through various events and through the City's media presence.

Community Events


  • Spring Festival - Come enjoy Bel Aire's community Easter Egg Hunt with over 10,000 eggs. Get your picture with the Easter Bunny and enjoy all the other activities happening for all ages! Bring your own kite or buy a new one from Wings of the Wind. So much room to fly a kite and get help from the experts.
  • Hot Dawgs Pool Party - Bel Aire's annual fundraiser for the furry friends in our lives. Bring your dog to Central Park Community Pool for one last splash before we close it for the season. $5 per dog at the door. Dogs must be current on vaccinations and on leash until they enter the pool area.
  • Fall Festival - There is something for everyone at our Fall Festival. Show up and shine at the "Cruise into Bel Aire" car show or shop the vendor fair located inside our Bel Aire Recreation Center. Outside we have soccer games, food and other fun activities for the family.
  • Holiday Event - Start the holiday season off with an evening in Bel Aire. Santa will be available inside City Hall to take pictures with the children. Treats and drinks will be served. New in 2017 will be Bel Aire’s first tree community tree lighting...
