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.
