Let there be lights! This Saturday, downtown will get dressed up for the season, Hawaii-style. The ceremonial lighting of the city’s 50-foot tree in Honolulu Hale (city hall) kicks off the Honolulu City Lights celebration at 6 p.m. The tree lighting will be immediately followed by an electric light parade, which runs from Aala park back to Honolulu Hale.
Then, take in a holiday concert (Sky Gate area), starting at 7:30 which will feature John Cruz, Jake Shimabukuro, Karen Keawehawai’i, Kristian Lei and J Boog & Laga Savea. Then, wander around to see the uniquely island light displays, including a 21-foot Santa flashing the shaka, a surfing snowman and a mega ukulele.
If this doesn’t get you singing Mele Kalikimaka, nothing will. Scrooge.
