Lights on Rice: One of The Best Small Town Parades


In case you missed the annual Lights on Rice Christmas parade on Kauai, here’s a short video I took to put you in our island style holiday mood.

This year’s parade took place on December 4, and as always was one of the best-attended events on Kauai.  It runs the length of Rice Street and featured nearly 60 floats and other entrants.

Lights on Rice brings both locals and visitors together to enjoy the start of the holidays featuring music, parade, craft fair (sponsored by the Kauai Museum) and food vendors.

If you missed the parade but plan to be on Kauai this month, be sure to check out the Festival of Lights. It’s open Friday through Sunday evenings from 6-8 pm., through December 24.

This year’s Festival of Lights acknowledges the passing of friend and illustrious folk artist Auntie Josie, soon after we interviewed her last Christmas.

If you’ve been to either of these two holiday celebrations on Kauai, I’d appreciate your comments.
