Last Saturday eve Kilauea’s community gathered for the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony. Festive and Fun!


Kauai Talk is a podcast dedicated to celebrating the Aloha of the Garden Island, Kaua’i in beautiful Hawaii.

In this session we share the wonderful tree lighting at Kilauea’s Dispensary Park last weekend and our top gift ideas from the island.

Over 2000 people enjoyed the Kilauea community Christmas Festival. A meal was provided by area businesses and churches to everyone in attendance.

Santa arrived by horse drawn carriage and led the ceremonial lighting of the community’s Christmas tree. Hear from some long time residents what an island Christmas is like. I also talked to 3 teenagers and they share their favorite weather for the holiday … it may surprise you.

Launa and I talk about our favorite gifts from the island. Coffee, rum, candles, soaps, and art all make the list.

We hope you catch a bit of the Christmas spirit from this Hawaiian Island.

And Mele Kalikimaka!
