Santa arrives in Waikiki by canoe

WAIKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Santa made his annual visit to Waikiki Saturday morning, opting to leave the sleigh and reindeer at home and to arrive in a more traditional mode of island transportation -- an outrigger canoe.

The canoe was powered by the beach staff of Faith Surf School.  Hundreds were on hand to welcome this very VIP visitor, including keiki from Halau `O Pua Kahale.

Santa's arrival was followed by free photos with Santa in the lobby of the Outrigger Waikiki.
