December 12, 2015 – Update!
We had a wonderful time in the Mānoa Christmas Parade, many thanks to the fantastic people who came out to ride their beautifully decorated bikes (and trikes!) this past Saturday as we cruised around Mānoa. Mahalo as well to the Mānoa Lions Club who organized the parade, we are so happy HBL could participate, and are looking forward to next year! We had Christmas elves, a reindeer, a decked out Christmas tree in a bike trailer, and many more merry riders to join us.

Come join us in the 2015 Mānoa Christmas Parade on December 12th (Saturday)! We’ll be decking out our bicycles with fun decorations and cheer as we cruise along in the parade that begins at Noelani Elementary School (in Mānoa). The event is expected to have 1,100 marchers, 12 vehicles, & 5 bands. Other participants including state and local government VIP’s, local businesses, community organizations, and youth clubs, have made the Mānoa Christmas Parade a festive and colorful holiday season event. It starts at 5pm but we will meet at 4pm at the Noelani School for bicycle decoration and staging. Bring your best holiday attire! Please email Malia at Malia@HBL.org or sign-up HERE to be part of the festivities!
We will bring some garlands and things to dress up our rides, but if you have some festive accessories to deck out your bike then please feel free to bring them (lights?!)! You can wear whatever you feel comfortable cruising along in (the more holiday spirit the better!), just make sure it doesn’t interfere with you riding safely.
Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season and hope to see you on the 12th!
