2010 Neighbor Island Christmas display kickoff celebrations:
Dec. 3—Lihue: 14th annual Lihue Festival of Lights. Opening night festivities start at 6 p.m. with the Lights on Rice Street parade. Food, live music and the lighting of Lihue town’s Christmas decorations follow. The lights in Lihue will be on nightly until Dec. 31.

Dec 4-5—Lahaina: Holiday Lighting of the Banyan Tree. Scheduled activities include crafts, holiday cookie decorating, community choir concerts, hula, live Hawaiian music and a “snow zone.” You heard right—snow. A Maui seafood purveyor makes the snow with a industrial ice machine, which is trucked over for the celebration. Lighting of the town’s historic banyan tree happens at 6:30 p.m. on Dec. 4.
Dec. 11—Volcano: Holiday Lights Celebration. This colorful Christmas tree and light display features a children's ornament contest, an ohia yule log hunt, caroling, marshmallow roasting and a visit by Santa Claus. It takes place at Volcano Art Center’s Niaulani Campus from 4 to 7 p.m. For more information, call (808) 967-8222 or visit www.volcanoartcenter.org
