Families from around O‘ahu have been checking out the new Victoria Ward Park in Ward Village, currently adorned with 25 thousand LEDS in a blend of art and technology entitled Light Garden:  a Thousand Year Bloom.  This marks the opening of Victoria Ward Park, and reflects a continuing effort by the Howard Hughes Corporation to use art to animate spaces.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports.

Some people are noting changes in the traditional Christmas season.  The advent of online shopping especially has lessened people’s exposure to the trappings of Christmas, including decorations and loops of holiday music.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa returned to Anapau Street, site of the famous Waikele Lights neighborhood light display, to see how people are keeping their Christmas spirit alive.
