Kaimukī Christmas parade returns Dec. 1

HONOLULU (KHON2) — The Kaimukī Christmas parade returns on Thursday, Dec. 1 after a three hiatus.

The parade begins at 6 p.m. at Chaminade University and St. Louis School and will move westbound on Wai’alae Ave. ending at Koko Head Ave.

“We are excited to welcome back kama’āina from around the island to help us kick off the holiday season in Kaimukī at one of our most beloved traditions – the KBPA Kaimukī Christmas Parade,” said Calvin Hara, KBPA president.

KBPA said that since the parade is moving westbound on Wai’alae Ave. that it will be best to view the parade from the makai [ocean] side of the street. Of course Santa will be in attendance along with a plethora of marching bands, scout packs, schools, businesses, walkers and trollies.

“We encourage our guests to come and enjoy the parade and after the event support many of our Kaimukī businesses – on Dec. 1 and throughout the holiday season – that make up what makes this place so special,” added Hara.
