This year there are many changes to some of our holiday traditions due to the coronavirus. People are not able to celebrate the same way but that’s not a reason to have a blue Christmas. Here are some ideas to make this season a little brighter for all!
Jingle Rock Ride
When: December 13, 2020
Time: 5:30 – 8:00pm
Where: 1050 Ala Moana Blvd, Honolulu
This year, Make-A-Wish Hawaii, is changing up their annual fundraiser, Jingle Rock Run to Jingle Rock Ride. This is a fun activity and all proceeds will help grant wishes for our local keiki with critical illnesses. Participants will receive a map to guide them to the best places to see the holiday lights in Oahu. They’ll also receive a car magnet and ornament to remember the night of fun. Prizes will also be given for best dressed, top fundraiser, and most festive vehicle. So decorate your car, put on a fun holiday outfit, and share in the holiday aloha spirit! Can’t make it to the event? Please consider donating to Make-A-Wish Hawaii.
Show Aloha Land

Holiday Lights Trolley Tour
When: December 0-27, 2020
Time: 6pm, 7pm and 8pm
Where: Departs from Ward Village (Auahi St)
Climb aboard the festive open-air Waikiki Trolley for a night to remember. You’ll be taken to the Honolulu Hale are to see the decorations and holiday lights while singing Christmas carols and listening to wonderful Christmas stories. You’ll drive by Honolulu’s famous Shaka Santa and Tutu Mele! This year they will look a little different wearing aloha print masks! The 45-minute ride will begin at Victoria Ward Park and will only book at 50% capacity to allow for social distancing.
Hawaii has amazing weather in December making it the perfect environment for being outdoors. Head to the beach during the day and end the evening with a stroll with loved ones to visit neighborhoods adorned with lights and decorations. This is a perfect free evening of fun to enjoy the Hawaii Christmas experience with your Ohana.
