Queen Ka’ahumanu Center 877-4325
275 E. Ka’ahumanu Ave., Kahului
Queen Ka’ahumanu Center welcomes Da Maui Sleigh
Friday, December 8, 2017 from 5:30 – 8:30pm in the North-East parking lot, corner
for Ka’ahumanu Avenue and Kane Street.
Da Maui Sleigh began as a father and son tradition over 16 years ago when James
Presbitero saw a small sleigh pass by in his neighborhood and decided to recreate the vision
on a larger scale. Created at his own expense and through unsolicited donations, Da Maui
Sleigh is now an annual holiday tradition, visiting communities throughout Maui bringing joy
and happiness to Maui’s keiki.
The event is expected to draw a large crowd and therefore keiki crafts and letters to Santa
will be available to keep the keiki busy while waiting for their turn. There are no reservations.
Children and adults with special needs are welcome to enjoy Da Maui Sleigh from 3:30 to
4:30pm. General admission commences at 5:30pm with the last ride scheduled at 8:20pm.
