From Karen Higa and Claire Tamamoto:

Come join us at the Aiea Christmas Parade 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 the parade, please see the application form 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.

The Blood Bank of Hawaii will be at the Aiea Public Library that day for a blood drive. Hawaii needs more than 200 blood donors every day. Do your part! You can schedule an appointment to give blood by scanning the QR code in the flier below, or you can go to
