The One Light Display In Hawaii That Will Fill You With Holiday Wonder

Celebrating Christmas without snow or cold weather may seem weird for some, but it’s normal practice in Hawaii, and we certainly make up for a lack of snow with incredible Christmas displays, light parades, and celebrations sure to put even the most Grinch-like people into the holiday spirit. While the Hawaiian Islands as a whole celebrate Christmas beautifully — from snowmen made out of the sand on Kauai beaches to the snow-topped Mauna Kea on Hawaii Island — this particular light display is guaranteed to fill you with holiday cheer and have you singing Christmas carols and drinking eggnog in no time.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The Kapolei City Lights kicks off this year on December 8 at 5 p.m. with a tree lighting ceremony and electric light parade. For more information, visit their website or follow them on Facebook.
