Honolulu City Lights Trolley Ride with Waikiki Trolley and E Noa Tours is the best way to see Christmas lights in Honolulu. Every night until Saturday, Dec 30 you can join a very unique Christmas Parade in Honolulu.
The Trolley picks you and your elves up at T Galleria in Waikiki at your scheduled time. The Christmas Trolley is lit up and decorated like a one horse open sleigh playing festive Christmas music. On the Honolulu City Lights Trolley Ride you don’t have to worry about parking, the Trolley picks you up and drops you off.
Enjoy caroling and merriment while avoiding the parking and traffic hassle of traffic as “Santa” drives your sleigh. The Holiday Lights Tour takes you through historic Downtown drops you off in front of the Honolulu City Lights at Honolulu Hale.
The Honolulu City Lights is non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the City and County of Honolulu, through fundraising and coordination, while maintaining the quality and continuity of the annual free month-long December celebration that brings joy to local families and visitors. The lights celebration was started in 1985 by Honolulu’s favorite Mayor, Frank F. Fasi. The celebration was called “Let There Be Peace, Let There Be Light.” In 1987 the name was changed to the Honolulu City Lights and every year they have added more lights and activities.
The most famous sights at Honolulu City Lights are the 21 foot Shaka Santa and Tutu Mele (Mrs. Clause). Shaka Santa has been welcoming visitors 1989 and Tutu Mele joined him in 1994. This years theme is “It’s a Zoo Out There!”
