It’s Official – The Christmas Season Has Started

The tradition continues. Ala Moana Center annually puts up their giant Santa Claus statue over the Halloween weekend. The statue was first erected in December 1959 shortly after the Ala Moana opened its doors in August 1959. A center staff member came up with the Santa idea. 

Anyone who grew up here has seen enormous Santa statue over the years. It brings a smile as you drive by the center.

After 60 years service, it was time for the old statue’s retirement. This year’s statue is new according to a television news report. And for this year, Santa sports a medical face mask.

Special Thanks to Ala Moana Center management for continuing this holiday tradition.
