Lanikai Preparing For 2015 ‘Day After’ Party

Ever since 1968, people in Lanikai always know when it’s New Year’s Day, and so it continues at 8 a.m. Jan. 1, 2015, at the community park with a foot race, then the Woes Day Parade at 9.

Style, grace, fun and woes from the past year are on display at the race, followed by the marchers and floats as they meander along Lanikai Loop and return to the park for breakfast, live jazz, awards and a live auction of original art. A breakfast of scrambled eggs, Portuguese sausage, muffins, orange juice and coffee will be prepared by David Smith for a mere $5 per person.

An open invitation has been extended to all groups and clubs who use the park, the loop, the ridge, the bay and the beach. Floats, decorated bikes and pets are welcome, along with a supportive crowd.
