Honolulu camping permits available only Wednesday

HONOLULU (AP) - Permits to camp on Honolulu city grounds during the second weekend of December will be issued Wednesday because city offices will be closed on Thanksgiving and the day after, due to furloughs.

The free permits cover Dec. 10 through Dec. 15.

They'll be available on a first come, first served basis.

Each permit allows a maximum of 10 people and two family-sized tents.
