Public Invited to “Magic Of The Season” Dec. 10-21

Free fun, food and festivities for the whole family will be part of the County of Hawai‘i’s 2nd Annual holiday open house – the Magic of the Season – to be held December 10-21 at the Hawai‘i County Building in Hilo.

County volunteers will decorate dozens of trees, provide refreshments and offer holiday cheer so families may enjoy a safe, community-oriented event. Members of the public may view the exciting decorations daily starting at 8 a.m. Live entertainment, refreshments and holiday activities will be available weeknights between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Cyril Pahinui, Ben Kaili, Mark Yamanaka, Darlene Ahuna, Henry Kapono, and Lehua Kalima will be among the Nā Hōkū Hanohano award-winning performers. Taiko drummers, hula dancers and student musicians also will take turns entertaining audiences.

School groups, civic organizations and individuals are invited to experience the holiday offerings by touring the office building located at 25 Aupuni St. Attendees may vote for the best displays, which will receive donated prizes.

For more information, please call the Office of Mayor Billy Kenoi at 961-8211.
