The Kaimuki Business & Professional Association will present the annual Kaimuki Christmas parade on Thursday, December 4th, 2014 starting at 6:00 pm along Waialae Avenue from Saint Louis School/Chaminade University to Koko Head Avenue. This is the 68th year the parade has been held. We anticipate over 40 groups will be marching the 1.1 mile length of the parade, including Santa, beauty queens, local area schools and bands.
The event will also mark the official lighting of the Kaimuki Christmas tree on top Pu'u O Kaimuki (also known as Menehune Hill.) Each year, KBPA provides the lights and decorations for the Christmas Tree and Kaimuki Community Park. The Kaimuki Community Park organizes volunteers from the Hawaiian Electric Company to string the lights.
Parade viewing is free and open to the public.
Special appearance by Santa Claus.
Approximately 40 Kaimuki businesses, schools bands, and community groups participating this year.
VIP seating located at the front entrance area of the Kaimuki Plaza (10th Avenue and Waialae) is available to major sponsor donors of $250 or more. In addition to receiving 4 tickets to a private elevated viewing area to watch the parade, donors will receive validated parking, light pupus, and refreshments.

Back to the top About Annual Kaimuki Christmas Parade As has been the tradition for many years past, the 67th annual Kaimuki Christmas Parade will march down Waialae Avenue from St. Louis School/Chaminade University to Koko Head Avenue. Featured are the local elementary and high schools, businesses, several bands, girl and boy scouts, local healthcare facilities, our legislators and council representatives, the Fire Department, motorcycle groups, dogs, clowns, and, of course, Santa! Please be aware of the traffic congestion that will result as the parade marches up Waialae Avenue. This is a Kaimuki event that many look forward to every year.
