KBPA CHRISTMAS PARADE
The KBPA Kaimuki Christmas Parade 2022 will take place on Thursday, December 1 starting at 6:00pm. It will travel east on Waialae from Chaminade/St. Louis to Koko Head Avenue. Traffic will be maintained in the westbound lanes of Waialae, so the best viewing will be from the makai side of the street.

Looking forward to seeing you at our first parade since the pandemic. Happy Holidays!
SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS CEREMONY 2022
The 2021 Kaimuki Christmas Parade was not held this year due to the pandemic. As an alternative, we held our first-ever KBPA “Parade-in-Place” on Thursday, December 2, 2021 from 6-8pm, plus an additional holiday sign waving on Tuesday, December 20th! Pictures from both events in the slideshow below.
Participants who would have been in the parade held a holiday sign-waving instead along the usual parade route.
PU’U O KAIMUKI CHRISTMAS TREE
KBPA coordinates the annual lighting and maintenance of the Pu’u O Kaimuki Christmas Tree. Located above the Kaimuki Fire Station, the tree has been re-fitted with LED lights and can be seen for miles. The tree is illuminated nightly and will remain lit through the holidays. Our appreciation goes to the volunteers of Hawaiian Electric, who donate their time and equipment to maintain the structure.
