There are a lot of lovable people here. People need to be excepted for who they are and if you are interested in making really good, loyal friends this is the place. I've lived here for a long time and for awhile I was to myself and I thought this wasn't the best place to live. But when I actually go out and do things and find people to hang with, I don't ever want to leave this place! People here are so fun, at least the people I know!

I am proud to have grown up in a mediocre living area because it helps to establish a certain humbleness, yet knowing life is "pretty okay". I would say a lot of community members stay here for a long time. There are multiple instances where people grew up here and stayed or moved back to raise their children. Everyone is pretty friendly especially if you take a more active role in the community.
Belleville attracts a lot of people by its Strawberry Festival. There is a parade, fireworks, art/crafts show, and carnival rides. Booths are spread on some streets and different places rent out their land to put up rides. Strawberry everything is sold. There is a Jingle Bell Run and the Christmas Parade in the winter. 4-H clubs and competitions are also frequented.
