56th Annual Waimea Christmas Twilight Parade “Starlight Christmas” December 3rd   Leave a comment

Leading this year’s 56th Annual Waimea Christmas Parade will be a large entourage of Waimea youth from virtually all Waimea schools sharing a chant, “Malana Mai Ka’u,” written by Queen Emma, that likens Hawai’i Island to a canoe. The youth cohort, wearing the uniform of their respective school, will be swarming around this year’s Grand Marshall, PWO Navigator Milton “Shorty” Bertelmann of Waimea.

“Shorty” was chosen this year’s Grand Marshall because this year’s theme is “Starlight Christmas” – intended to honor this community’s celestial navigation past, present and future, and because of his decades of work to master and help perpetuate the celestial navigation skills of ancient Polynesian voyagers.

“Shorty” apprenticed for 32 years with the late revered Polynesian navigator, Papa Mau Piailug from Satawal, starting in 1975 on the Hokule’a. Later, he helped co-found Na Kalai Wa’a with Waimea’s voyaging ‘ohana and has served as navigator, captain and educational leader on numerous voyages on the Hokule’a and Makali’i. He also supervised building of the Alingano Maisu voyaging canoe that was gifted by Na Kalai Wa’a to Papa Mau.

“Shorty” is currently President of Na Kalai Wa’a.

But there’s more. Coinciding with parade weekend is an annual meeting here in Waimea – hosted by Na Kalai Wa’a – of the entire Hawaiʻi waʻa community leadership representing about nine canoes around the state. All have been invited to join “Shorty” in the parade. While participation is voluntary, parade organizers expect an impressive representation of the leaders of the statewide voyaging community to join in.

Parade spectators who know the “Malana Mai Ka’u” chant – and many do because of widespread interest in Hokule’a’s ongoing worldwide voyage and because most schools have taught the chant to students – these individuals are invited to join in and chant along with the students walking with the Grand Marshall. In so doing, the parade will also honor the worldwide voyage’s “Malama Honua” theme that advocates caring for Mother Earth.

Part of caring for our planet includes being sure no one is forgotten. Thus, as has become a tradition for Waimea’s Christmas Parade, the event also supports Big Island Giving Tree’s outreach programs to be sure the community’s children, kupuna (seniors) and others facing difficult times are remembered during the holidays. Just before the start of the parade, a Big Island Giving Tree Bucket Brigade Blue Crew will canvas spectators for donations. BIGT is an all-volunteer organization so every penny donated goes to families, kupuna and others in need in this community.

Hawai’i’s second oldest Christmas parade will again include dozens of units representing Waimea keiki to kupuna including churches, schools, youth groups, community organizations, farms, ranches and businesses, plus a huge brigade of festively lighted trucks. As always, Santa has promised to again ride in our parade and afterwards, visit with keiki at Parker Ranch Center’s Fireside Food Court.

Traffic Advisory – Road Closure: 5:30-6:45 p.m. Expect delays! Only emergency vehicles will be permitted to pass through the center of town during the parade.

Public Safety & Respecting the ‘Aina: Please watch keiki and stay on the curb – emergency vehicles may need to pass. Absolutely no candy throwing. Please respect the ‘aina – don’t park on landscaped areas at hospital & shopping centers, pick up rubbish and no tents on private property except for permitted food booths.

Lighted Trucks & Santa: These are “signatures” of our Waimea parade. We love our truckers but they can be noisy! If noise is difficult for you or for infants, find a spot near the Church Row or Keck narrator stations; trucks are asked not to blow horns until they pass the hospital. Mahalo to NHCH staff and Brailey Pastorino for our annual Santa float!

Parade Route & Narrator Stations: The parade will begin on the east (Hilo) end of historic Church Row Park and will turn right onto Mamalahoa Highway thru town center, then turn right onto Lindsey Road at the main intersection, passing Parker School to disband in Waimea Park. There will be 10 narrator stations:
Starting Line – East/Hilo end of Church Row Park (sponsored by New Hope Church)

Bottom (West end) of Church Row Park (sponsored by Voyage Church Waimea)

The Big Island Giving Tree’s Bucket Brigade Blue Crew: Waimea’s Christmas parade both welcomes the season and encourages community generosity to be sure no one is left out, so we urge everyone’s support of The Big Island Giving Tree. Suggested contributions include a check (payable to The Big Island Giving Tree – fully tax deductible!), cash or a gift card from KTA, Foodland, Longs, Costco, Wal-Mart or local gas stations. BIGT now serves our community year-round and donations are welcome throughout the year. All parade entries are required to contribute and also a Blue Crew Brigade of volunteers will canvas spectators along the parade route for BIGT donations beginning about 5:15 p.m. Please be generous to support our kupuna and families who have experienced hardship. Absolutely no other organizations are permitted to collect donations along the parade route. Watch for the Blue Crew with their buckets! Every penny given to BIGT is used to help individuals and families – all involved are volunteers.

Lua: Portaluas will be placed along the parade route. On parade day, North Hawai’i Community Hospital is unable to provide public restrooms.
