Hilo Christmas Lights
Here is your 2017 guide to Christmas Light Displays. This list is a partial carry over from 2016, and should be accurate*. However, not all of the displays have been confirmed as of yet!
All of the Hilo lights are included below, starting with some of the best displays in Panaewa. Other neighborhoods are listed below that. You can use the buttons to shortcut you to the particular sections you're interested in, or just scroll down.
NOTE: Listings with this ✅ mark, are 2016 verified.
Did I miss any good ones? If you find a display with more than 10 strands of lights and some yard art, please submit the details to me and I'll add it to the listings.

- 95 Waianuhea Pl. and 2714 Waianuhea Way –Great light displays on two houses in this dead end street. The houses, carport and yard all included in each display. NOTE: This is a dead end street so be courteous and turn off lights with turning around.✅

- Top of Kukuau st., last home on the right. Love the row of 20 or so 1′ tall Christmas Trees lining the driveway.✅
- Kipuni st. Loop. Bunch (4 or houses) Several houses on this loop worth checking out. Hit Kipuni on the way up to the top of Kukuau, or turn left on Kipuni on the way back down. The turn is right where the corner house (1010 Kukuau) is located on the Mauka side of the street.✅
- 1010 Kukuau St. ??? NO DISPLAY? Nice light display with lights on house trees and fixtures. Not too shabby.
- 🚫468 Ohukea st. NO DISPLAY THIS YEAR! 🚫 ;-( Some have called it the Chinese house. I’ve yet to confirm that title. But there is no disputing the lights. Very good! This might have beat out Awapuhi St. if only they had music!
