PHOTOS: Makawao Third Friday Celebrates Holiday Season
By Madeline Ziecker
At only the second official monthly Makawao Third Friday Town Party on Friday, December 16, the town was already buzzing with activity and crowds of visitors all evening.
The theme for this month’s Makawao Third Friday Town Party was “Makawao Gives: A Hawaiian Holiday Party” and almost every shop on upper Baldwin Ave. was aglow with Christmas decorations. Most store doors stayed open with festive activities and food offered until 9 p.m.
Earlier in the evening, parts of Baldwin Ave. and Makawao Ave. were blocked off for the Paniolo Holiday Parade where Santa Claus was spotted on a farm tractor and several cowboys and cowgirls rode on horseback in festive costumes.
Entertainment began at various Makawao locations simultaneously around 6 p.m. with musicians performing live on at least six different stages around town, including Kalama Elementary’s ukulele group on the Center Stage.
The next Makawao Town party will take place on the third Friday of January next year, 2012.
