Show Aloha Land Light Show



There have been a lot of new things that have come out of 2020, thanks to the pandemic - new restaurants, new ways of working and attending school, and now that we're in the holiday season, new ways to celebrate Christmas.  

The Show Aloha Land drive-thru holiday light show is the first of its kind in Hawai‘i’. The display is one mile long, and consists of 1 million LED lights, all synchronized and choreographed.  This event is a fundraiser for the Show Aloha Challenge (SAC) Foundation, which has been providing food and meals to families in need throughout the pandemic. Admission is $50 per vehicle, and all proceeds will go the SAC Foundation, so that the Foundation can continue its outreach programs, including a new program that will help Hawai‘i’s kÅ«puna age in place.

By the time I searched for a ticket for the show, most of the desirable time slots were sold out, so I settled for the 6-6:30 pm time slot on a Monday night (during Christmas break). As you can see from the picture below, it wasn't entirely dark yet at 6 pm, but we knew the sun would be going down rather quickly.
 



We got our QR code scanned for entry onto the course, bought a bag of kettlecorn, tuned our radio to 88.5 FM, and enjoyed the 30 minute drive thru show.








After going through the second of two light tunnels, we reached the end of the show. We proceeded to the 50 foot 'mega tree' to take photos and stretch our legs. Unfortunately since it was a Monday, we missed out on the In-Tent Grindz (click here for the menu), which only operates Thurs - Sunday.  




The show has been extended thru January 9, 2021. To purchase tickets, go to: https://www.tickettailor.com/events/showalohaland. The final week (January 3-9, 2021) is Make a Wish Week, where 15% of the gross proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Make a Wish Hawai‘i’.




Happy Holidays!
