About Annual Kaimuki Christmas Parade

The Kaimuki Business & Professional Association will present the annual Kaimuki Christmas parade on Thursday, December 6th, 2018 starting at 6:00 pm along Waialae Avenue from Saint Louis School/Chaminade University to Koko Head Avenue. This is the 72th 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.

As has been the tradition for many years past, the annual Kaimuki Christmas Parade will march up 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.

Annual Kaimuki Christmas Tree Lighting

Update [12_6_18_12-0-PM] - Unfortunately KBPA will not be able to light the tree.They are still in discussion with the city about the integrity of the equipment. They are working to find a solution and hopefully they will be able to have it ready for next Christmas.

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.
