Spreading the Christmas cheer.

At this year’s Parade of Lights, several brightly and creatively decorated trucks, cars and even a boat rode by, shouting out holiday wishes and some tossing candy to the hundreds of people and families who watched the Christmas parade last Saturday. The police station, fire department, several Molokai businesses and Santa Claus and his elves were all well represented.



The Molokai Chamber Foundation played host to the festivities again, and organized dessert, Christmas tree, ornament and stocking contests at the Mitchell Pauole Center.

Along with last week’s Parade of Lights, the Molokai Chamber Foundation also welcomed the season with a few contests to get Molokai ready for the holidays. Participants temporarily turned Mitchell Pauole Center into Santa’s workshop last Saturday night by filling it with entries into the Christmas tree, ornament, stockings and dessert competition. The winners and their prizes are listed below.
