MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - Front Page - ByCHRISFLECK

Santa’s sleigh joins the en­tire Ewa Beach com­mu­nity this Satur­day for the Ewa Beach Lions Club Com­mu­nity Christ­mas Pa­rade and Ho‘olaulea.

The pa­rade be­gins at 10 a.m. at the Boys and Girls Club on FortWeaver Road and makes a loop up Kuhina Street to Hanakahi Street, down North Road and ends back at the club­house. There will be a va­ri­ety of dec­o­rated floats from area schools, churches, busi­nesses, sports teams and com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tions, and Santa him­self will carry more than 900 pounds of hard candy with plenty of nim­ble elves to help dis­trib­ute the treats safely into the hands of ea­ger on­look­ers.

“The econ­omy has been tough, and some chil­dren are not go­ing to have many toys this year,” said club sec­re­tary Sam Fisk.“At least the Lions can pro­vide a grand dis­play and candy treats to brighten the day of peo­ple young and old.”

Af­ter the march, the com­mu­nity is in­vited to cel­e­brate from noon to 9 p.m. at Ewa Beach Com­mu­nity Park with live en­ter­tain­ment, hol­i­day per­for­mances, crafts, games, rides and lo­cal com­fort food for sale to raise funds for the Ewa Beach Crush Youth Foot­ball League and World Youth Day.
