Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from now through December 24, visit Kauai’s annual Festival of Lights at the Historic County Building.
The holiday display features Christmas trees decorated with touches of
Kauai like sparkling rainbows, waterfalls, shave ice and dolphins, or
‘Surfin’ Santa’s Sleigh’ pulled by roosters. Other local favorites
include the ‘SPAM Can’, Hula Bear’, ‘Kilauea Lighthouse’, and ‘Peacock’
trees, and Kauai’s own Aloha Recycled Treasures made from plastic water
bottles. For more information, visit KauaiFestivals.com.
Experience Christmas in Polynesia at the Polynesian Cultural Center on Oahu every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from December 12-23. Guests will take a 25-minute canoe ride that winds through a live production of Kamakana and the Five Fir Trees, a local adaptation of a popular Christmas story, The Three Fir Trees.
Along the route, the grounds will be decked with elaborate Christmas
lights, life-size gingerbread houses, and of course the season’s iconic
Santa Claus. For more information, visit Polynesia.com.
