Get ready to experience the best holiday season like you never have before. Come and join us for a beautiful island Christmas on Oahu. Not only is the landscape here gorgeous and lush even through the winter, from the green mountains to the turquoise waters, but the spirit here is brighter than ever too.
Celebrate the season and make some time in-between to remember an important historical event and honor those that came before us. Every year on December 7th you’ll see this parade making its way down Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki, including marching bands, decorated floats, and even helicopters. The opening ceremony will be at 4:30pm and the parade will end around 7:30pm.
It’s our favorite time of year to pass by Honolulu Hale, the Honolulu city hall. In December you’ll find a glowing light display that lasts from December 7th through January 1st. It’s a great stop to add a little splash of magic to a serene holiday night on Oahu.
Save some room in your suitcase and wait to buy gifts until you get to the island. You’ll find the annual Christmas Market open from December 14th-15th at the Neal Blaisdell Expo Hall. Here you can spend an exciting afternoon explore over 100 different vendors with products ranging from food to jewelry to authentic Hawaiian crafts. There will be holiday fun here too, like a Santa meet-and-greet, and a gingerbread workshop.
When December comes, head over to the Polynesian Cultural Center down Kamehameha Highway! You’ll find it all decked out to match the season, along with fun holiday activities for the whole family to enjoy. With everything from canoe rides to train rides, it makes for one fun day trip!
Head down to Kuhio Beach on select nights this December (the 3rd, 7th, 10th, 12th, 14th, 17th, 19th, 26th, and 28th) to see a memorable holiday hula show and experience Christmas on Oahu the island way. Make sure to stop in at the Waikiki Christmas Store while you’re there for some souvenirs and stocking stuffers!
