The Honolulu City Lights opening night festivities kick off a month long celebration of dazzling lights and displays, family-friendly activities, and merry fun on the Frank F. Fasi Civic Center Grounds.
One of the many highlights of the opening night festivities evening is the Public Workers' Electric Light Parade, which celebrates its 28th year as part of Honolulu City Lights. A dazzling procession of festooned city vehicles and school marching bands will travel from Chinatown through King Street, led by the parade's crowd-favorite mascot, the dancing "City Lights."
The opening night also includes a free, star-studded holiday concert near the Sky Gate. Opening night is from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m.
The public is encouraged to come early to take advantage of the free parking that is available in the city's municipal lot, with entry from the left lane of Beretania Street just past Alapai Street.
The celebration continues throughout the month of December featuring several special events to delight island families. Honolulu City Lights will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., and will run through January 1, 2019, including the Christmas and New Year's holidays.
