The Christmas tree at Pu'u O Kaimuki Mini Park was officially lighted on Monday, according to the city Department of Parks and Recreation.
Ukulele virtuoso and Kaimuki native Jake Shimabukuro was on hand for the ceremony at 5 p.m. The tree was lit at around 5:57 p.m.
Shimabukuro's friend Jeff Lau, a city employee, worked together with local electricians to repair the tree and replace the broken light bulbs. They obtained a permit to continue this Kaimuki Christmas tradition.
