HBA’s 2013 Winter Banquet was held at the Ala Moana Hotel; this time with a tropical twist.

Almost three hundred students attended this year’s banquet—themed Christmas in the Sand—and the night was hosted by seniors Bryn Yasui and Vivian Kuo. There were short intervals of table games to keep the guests entertained, including a Christmas carol sing-off between grades and a candy cane giveaway. The dance floor at this year’s event was more crowded than last year as a lot more students were present.

This year, couple and group pictures were taken on the same floor as the ballroom, making it more convenient for banquet goers.
