2022 KBPA CHRISTMAS PARADE

The staging area at Chaminade University/St. Louis High

The KBPA Kaimuki Christmas Parade 2022 was held on Thursday, December 1 and was a huge success. A big mahalo to KBPA’s CALVIN HARA who coordinated the entire event – from obtaining city permits months ago to finalizing the lineup on the night of the parade. A big mahalo as well to all of the volunteers who helped out.

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

The tree is illuminated nightly through the holiday season and can be seen from much of Honolulu. Our appreciation goes to the volunteers of Hawaiian Electric, who donate their time and equipment to maintain the lights and structure.
