Santa in a lighted sleigh. Open-air sampan-like buses from Kohala Ditch Adventures carrying a most precious cargo of nearly two dozen Waimea kupuna as the collective Grand Marshalls. A huge brigade of fancifully decorated rigs honoring a beloved fallen trucker and community friend, Kurt Okada. Dozens of walking and marching units handing out goodies including Waimea Outdoor Circle volunteers who will again give away 1,000 baby trees that recipients must promise to plant and care for. A chugging choo-choo train carrying smiling children and a cement mixer and fancy "honeywagon" covered with twinkling lights.
These are just some of the sights, sounds and pleasures in store for spectators at the 53rd Annual Waimea Christmas Twilight Parade at 5:15 p.m., Saturday, December 7, 2013.
