For residents and visitors alike, it’s being with family that makes the holidays special.

“Being with the ohana is what makes Christmas Day special,” said Kailua-Kona resident Annette Kaiawe. “Families should always get together on the holidays because you never know if you are going to get to see them again.”

Kaiawe and her family of more than two dozen members spent most of Christmas morning celebrating with plenty of food and fun at Pahoehoe Beach Park on Alii Drive. Saturday’s celebration was one of the rare occasions the family is able to get together and really spend time with each other.
