LIHU‘E — The annual Lights on Rice parade is set to start at 6 p.m., Friday, a county news release states.
The parade will begin at Vidinha Stadium, head down Ho‘olako and Rice streets, and end on ‘Eiwa Street at the Historic County Building.
To accommodate the parade, the Kaua‘i Police Department will close off all county streets along the parade route, from about 5:30 to 9 p.m., including Ho‘olako, Hardy, ‘Eiwa and Rice streets, as well as Haleko Road and Kapule Highway and all feeder roads to Rice Street.
Motorists will need to seek alternate routes to get to their destinations during the parade.
For the safety of pedestrians and vendors at the Kaua‘i Museum Christmas Craft Fair, which is also scheduled on Friday, there will be limited access through the ‘Eiwa Street entrance behind the museum from 4:30 p.m. on Thursday to noon on Saturday.
No parking will be allowed in the stalls along the hedge on the ‘Eiwa Street side of the Lihu‘e Civic Center parking lot as well as nearby stalls.
In addition, no parking will be allowed in the parking lots of the Historic County Building and the state buildings on Friday, 4:30 p.m. to midnight, to allow parade floats to park in these lots.
A private security company will be directing traffic in the area around the museum.
