Honolulu City Lights

Honolulu City Lights returns for the 35th year of holiday cheer on Saturday, December 7, 2019 (opening night). The Honolulu City Lights opening night festivities kick off a monthlong celebration of dazzling lights and displays, family-friendly activities and merry fun on the Frank F. Fasi Civic Center Grounds in downtown Honolulu (530 S. King Street). The annual event has been a beloved island tradition for thousands of residents and visitors alike.

The official tree lighting ceremony will start at 6 pm. One of the highlights of the evening is the Public Workers' Electric Light Parade, a dazzling procession of festooned city vehicles and school marching bands that will travel from Chinatown through King Street. The opening night also includes a free, star-studded holiday concert near the Sky Gate. Food and beverages will be sold on the grounds throughout the evening.
