King KamehamehaJoin us on Saturday morning, June 10, 2017, for the annual King Kamehameha Day Celebration Parade in Historic Kailua Village. Throughout the day, the community of West Hawai‘i will gather to honor the great ali‘i, King Kamehameha I, who established the first capital of the united Hawaiian Kingdom here in Kailua-Kona at Kamakahonu. This year’s parade theme is “Ho‘ohiwahiwa No Kamehameha,” translated, “Honoring Kamehameha.”

Beginning at 9 AM near Royal Kona Resort, the parade travels down Ali‘i Drive past Kamakahonu by the pier, then up Palani Road to Kuakini Highway. Adorned in the flowers and colors of the Hawaiian Islands, regal Pa‘u Rider Logopa‘u riders on horseback will represent each of the eight islands, led by their respective princesses and the pa‘u queen. The floral parade will also feature hula halau, equestrian units, marching bands, a horse-drawn carriage and more. After the parade, enjoy a ho‘olaule‘a (music and art festival) at Hulihe‘e Palace, including a free concert featuring top Hawaiian recording artists. Then take time to visit the many shops, galleries and historic landmarks of Historic Kailua Village.  Visit us on Facebook: KonaParadeFacebook for the latest updates.
