Join us in celebrating the 150th anniversary of Kamehameha Day Parade, a day to honor the memory of Kamehameha the Great and all that he accomplished for our Hawaiian Islands. The parade was started in 1872 by King Kamehameha V and included carnivals, fairs, and foot, horse, bike, and canoe races. Today, Hawaiʻi celebrates with an annual parade showcasing floral floats which parades from ʻIolani Palace through Kakaʻako, Ala Moana and Waikīkī. PAʻI Presents, Nā Pua a Kamehameha, an additional celebration that will involve storefronts along the Waikīkī strip. Nā Pua a Kamehameha is a friendly competition between shops by creating a floral window showcase utilizing flowers, lei, potted plants, and other foliage. Judging will be determined between two categories, "Best of Show" and "Peopleʻs Choice Award." We encourage the public to participate in the "Peopleʻs Choice Award" and vote for your favorite display.
