The West Kauai Business and Professional Association hosted thousands of people in Waimea to view the annual Waimea Lighted Christmas Parade Saturday.

The parade is the culmination of holiday-themed events that started with the Waimea town lighting ceremony that signalled the start of the street front decorating contest. The results of that effort sparkled brilliantly to enhance the moving caravan of lighted vehicles and marching units.

Additional excitement came in the form of the Friends of the Waimea Public Library used-book sale that attracted a record number of shoppers, and the Rotary Club of West Kauai distributed even more books through its parade float.

The Ayau ohana, and the return of P and P Malama, was celebrated by everyone with free refreshments and entertainment at Hofgaard Park, the end point of the parade. The musical entertainment lineup picked up the excitement where it left off following the parade.

Esther Estes was the parade chairperson.
