Christmas Comes to Holualoa

One of the most anticipated holiday events in Kona, the Holualoa Village Christmas and Light Festival is an annual tradition that attracts hundreds of residents and community members to the streets of our close-knit village. Now in its 15th year, the event is hosted by Holualoa Inn and Kona Blue Sky Coffee.

Festivities get underway from 5:30 to 8:30 pm on Saturday, December 3, with the lighting of the town Christmas tree at dusk. That's also when the village lights come on, transforming the town into a twinkling, Hawai‘i-style wonderland. Gallery owners open their doors and and serve up complimentary pupus and beverages, plus holiday treats, apple cider and 100-percent Kona coffee. There's also  live music, including performances this year by renowned slack-key musician, John Keawe. But the best part of the evening is the chance to run into friends and auld acquaintances, and to meet new friends or put names to familiar faces.

During the holidays, Holualoa Inn decks the halls with tropical flowers and amazing floral arrangements made of botanicals from our property. Last year, we decorated our Christmas tree with beautiful, white orchids. The wood-burning fireplace in our living area casts a warm holiday glow to the premises, and the scent of fresh-baked cookies wafts throughout the Inn during the day. When you book a stay at our Kona Hawaii bed and breakfast during the holiday season, you're sure to experience a Christmas to remember.
