Kauai Events - Waimea Xmas Parade & Party

Real Estate Agent with Resort and Second-Home Specialist REALTOR Broker #21673

Saturday, December 19th locals and visitors on Kauai's west side can gather to watch the 20th Annual Waimea Lighted Christmas Parade.

The festivities begin at 6:00 pm but it's a good idea to arrive early. The organizers suggest finding a spot for parade viewing by 4:00 pm. There is plenty to do while you wait. Talk story with people around you, or grab something tasty from one of the many food vendors. And of course there's always shopping. ;-)


Then watch the parade! See floats decorated with lights and marching groups in holiday trim parade down the center of Waimea Town.

After the parade there's a public Christmas party at Hofgaard Park featuring live, on-stage music and entertainment until 11:00 pm.


Visitor's Tip: The Waimea Lighted Christmas Parade is held annually on the Saturday before Christmas. Plan to get there early and stay to join the party after.

Kathleen, sure looks like a fun event this Saturday, and can send you some snow to make it festive?

LOL, Joan Cox! The only "snow" that lasts here is the fake kind. Right now it's a balmy 81 degrees in Princeville.

Bet your weather for the parade Saturday will be warmer than our high of 19 degrees expected in NW Indiana that day Kathleen :0

Jeff&Grace Safrin it is currently 81 degrees here. Maybe just a little warmer than Valparaiso? ;-)

I'm sorry, but it would be pretty hard to feel holiday in Hawaii....but oh I do want to go.
