Big Santa

Since 1959, 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 announced a new and improved Big Santa who made his debut last holiday. New Big Santa is made of all new materials using 2500 sq. ft. of fiberglass and close to 2,000 pounds of resin that’ll 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 will be wearing a mask again this year.
