CITY LIGHTS DISPLAY APPLICATION DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 24
Non-profit organizations interested in creating a display on the Civic Center grounds during Honolulu City Lights are invited to submit applications to the Neighborhood Commission Office by October 24.
Permits will be issued for five display sites via a lottery scheduled for November 1. The lottery will be held at 10 a.m. in the Mayor’s Conference Room, 3rd Floor, 550 S. King Street. Applicants are welcome to attend the lottery, but need not be present to be selected.
The annual lottery was started several years ago in response to a request from private groups interested in erecting displays at the same time as the Christmas event.
Displays chosen through the lottery process will be on view during the same period as Honolulu City Lights. Each organization that is issued a permit will be responsible for the set-up, maintenance and takedown of their display.
Applicants must be bona fide non-profit organizations formed under HRS Chapter 415B or any charitable organization formed pursuant to HRS Chapter 467B or under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue code. Proof of this designation must be submitted with the application by October 24 to be eligible for the lottery.
Interested groups should contact Joan Manke in the Neighborhood Commission Office, at 527-5759 to request a copy of the application and the rules governing the use of the grounds during Honolulu City Lights.
