Festival Details - "Honolulu City Lights (36th Annual)"...

Downtown Honolulu will soon be aglow as the 36th annual Honolulu City Lights goes bright on Saturday, Dec. 5.

The eagerly anticipated event, presented each year by the City and County of Honolulu and the Friends of Honolulu City Lights, has become a beloved island tradition for thousands of residents and visitors since 1985.

The opening night festivities kick off a month-long celebration of dazzling lights and displays, family-friendly activities and merry fun on the Frank F. Fasi Civic Center Grounds. Mayor Kirk Caldwell will lead the official tree lighting ceremony at 6 p.m. Then at 6:30 p.m., he will ceremoniously illuminate the city's 50-foot holiday tree, triggering the lights and displays that adorn the city grounds. Included with the tree lighting ceremony will be the holiday concert and the ever-jubilant public workers' electric light parade. Fortunately, Shaka Santa, Tutu Mele and friends will still be making their appearance in front of the Honolulu Hale building, and residents and visitors are still encouraged to pose with their favorite displays and snap that perfect Christmas card photo.

The public is encouraged to come early to take advantage of the free parking that is available in the city's municipal lot, with entry from the left lane of Beretania Street just past Alapai Street.

The celebration continues throughout the month of December to the delights of island families. Honolulu City Lights will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., and will run through midnight, Dec. 27, including Christmas
