Get Into the Spirit With These Festive Happenings at Ala Moana Center

| November 18, 2020 | Shop


For the past 60 years, Ala Moana Center’s iconic Big Santa has made his annual appearance atop the makai parking deck, signaling the official start of the holiday season in Hawaii. Ala Moana Center is pleased to announce that it has commissioned a new and improved Big Santa who will make his grand debut this holiday season. While he’ll look very similar to the original, the new Big Santa is made of all new materials to last another 60 years. And in alignment with the Center’s commitment to the health and well-being of its customers and employees, Big Santa is also wearing a mask.
