NEW Big Santa

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 reveal a new and improved Big Santa! While he'll look very similar to the original, the new Big Santa is made of all new materials, including 2,500 square feet of fiberglass and close to 2,000 pounds of resin that will 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.
