Parades light up holidays

Kauai welcomed the holidays with the 21st annual Kauai Christmas Parade at the Kukui Grove Center, giving shoppers a respite from the Black Friday frenzy.

Sponsored by the Kukui Grove Center, the Garden Island Federal Credit Union, and the Kauai Teachers Federal Credit Union, the parade is the first of three parades that brighten the holidays.

Tonight, the Rotary Club of Kauai hosts the free Lights on Rice street parade featuring more than 2,000 walkers and participants which highlights the Kauai Museum Christmas Craft Fair and the official lighting of the historic County Building and its front lawn by the Festival of Lights featuring the folk art of the late Josie Chansky.

The holidays wrap up with the annual Waimea Lighted Christmas Parade, Dec. 20, also known as the last Saturday before Christmas, hosted by the Waimea Community Association.
