Sponsored by Hawaii Convention Center
In Hawaii, a white Christmas is hard to come by. Thanks to the Hawaii Convention Center, you can enjoy some winter fun this season at its first-ever holiday festival and ice skating rink during “Winter Wishes – A Holiday Festival.” The fun starts on November 29 and runs through December 24, 2019.
“We wanted to create a signature holiday event that offers visitors and kama’aina from throughout Hawaii a fresh array of holiday experiences during this special season,” said Teri Orton, general manager at the Hawaii Convention Center.
Throughout the event, enjoy a series of themed skating nights! That includes Super Hero Skate Party, Disco Night, Awesome 80s, Totally 90s, A Charlie Brown Christmas and the National Ugly Christmas Sweater Skate Party.
The convention center is partnering with world-renowned figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi to benefit her Always Dream Foundation, which supports early childhood literacy and learning tools for low-income children and their families.
