‘Aiea Christmas Parade and Family Fun Fair

From Karen Higa and Claire Tamamoto:

We’re planning to have both the Aiea Christmas Parade and the Aiea Family Fun Fair this year!

The Aiea Christmas Parade will be held on December 9, 2023. Please join us at this community event to celebrate the holiday season, whether it’s as a participant or a spectator! (If you’d like to participate in either the parade or fair, please see the application forms below!)

Many schools, businesses, churches, and community groups have participated in previous years. The parade featured marching bands, classic cars, floats, and, of course, Santa. This year the parade will start at 9am at Pearl Ridge Elementary School and will end at the Old Sugar Mill Site on Halewiliko Street next to the Aiea Library.

Following the parade, we plan to bring back our Family Fun Fair at the old Aiea Sugar Mill site next to the Aiea Public Library. In the past, the ACA has hosted games, bouncers, community information booths, and Christmas crafts.

The Aiea Christmas Parade and Fun Fair is sponsored and funded by the Aiea Community Association, which is an IRS designated 501(c) 3 organization. The ACA is a non-profit community-based organization dedicated to serving the Aiea Community.

If you have any questions or would like more information about the Parade or Fun Fair, please contact Karen Higa at aieaparade@yahoo.com.

We hope you can help us to promote this family-friendly community event. Your help and support would be greatly appreciated.

Mahalo and Happy Holidays,

Karen Higa
Aiea Parade Committee
