Santa’s sleigh joins the entire Ewa Beach community this Saturday for the Ewa Beach Lions Club Community Christmas Parade and Ho’olaulea.

The parade begins at 10 a.m. at the Boys and Girls Club on Fort Weaver Road and makes a loop up Kuhina Street to Hanakahi Street, down North Road and ends back at the clubhouse. There will be a variety of decorated floats from area schools, churches, businesses, sports teams and community organizations, and Santa himself will carry more than 900 pounds of hard candy with plenty of nimble elves to help distribute the treats safely into the hands of eager onlookers.

“The economy has been tough, and some children are not going to have many toys this year,” said club secretary Sam Fisk.“At least the Lions can provide a grand display and candy treats to brighten the day of people young and old.”

After the march, the community is invited to celebrate from noon to 9 p.m. at Ewa Beach Community Park with live entertainment, holiday performances, crafts, games, rides and local comfort food for sale to raise funds for the Ewa Beach Crush Youth Football League and World Youth Day.

Families are asked to bring a canned food item for Our Lady Of Perpetual Help Church pantry.

“Our purpose in organizing this parade and ho’olaulea is to draw the community together to create a sense of place, of ownership and of caring amid smiles and laughter,” said Fisk.“I have been helping with the parade for years and I never tire of witnessing a sea of smiling faces.”
