Aloha Festival Parade September 13

Aloha Festival Parade is on Saturday, Sept. 13.

This is a very colorful parade.

It is also about 2 hours long.

Kalakaua Ave will be closed for the duration of the parade. So if you are in a hotel on the beach side of Kalakaua and need to get out with your vehicle, do so before the parade or you will be stuck for a while.

among a few hundred people getting off work, I witnessed the crowning of this years King and Queen and the presentation of the court at Iolani Palace.

A short mist of rain fell as the ceremony was taken place. The Royal Hawaiian Band played with the Iolani Court Guard standing at attention on the steps of the only Royal Palace in our country.

Don't forget tomorrow night in Waikiki, the block party and the Aloha Week Parade on Saturday morning. Events not to miss.

Buy an Aloha Week Ribbon - it will get you discounts and into venues sponsored by the Aloha Week Committee.

Hi there!

My husband and I arrive on Oahu Tuesday the 16th. The only Aloha Week activity I could find after our arrival was the following description:

5th Annual Aloha Festivals Keiki Ho'olaule'a, 10:00 a.m. – 3 p.m. Pearlridge Center Uptown & Downtown– Pearlridge will once again celebrate the Festival with a wide variety of free activities, demonstrations, arts & crafts and continuous stage performances by Halau Hula Olana, Keiki Palaka Band, Terry Brown Ukulele Studio and much more. Free monorail ride and discounts from participating merchants are available with an Aloha Festivals Ribbon, Plus a special appearance by the 2008 Aloha Festivals Royal Court. For more information, visit www.pearlridgeonline.com.

Can anyone give me more info? I know that "keiki" refers to children, but what is the activity? Why does it say "uptown and downtown"? Clicking on the link doesn't give me more info. Anyone been, is it worth attending? It's in a shopping center...so I am wary, but love festivals. Authentic?

Mahalo!

Pearlridge Center is a fairly large shopping center.

There are two sections, thus uptown & downtown. They are connected by a monorail that costs a few $$. Or you can drive around the center.

Don't know if I'd drive from Waikiki to see the event. There is keiki hula at Ala Moana Center on Sunday mornings. Much closer to Waikiki.

Dusty, we are staying on the North Shore, but I get what you're saying, and the distance looks to be about the same as from Waikiki.

Thanks Uncfest! Mmmm!!! Art and Food! I googled the festa, and scrumptious malasadas are on the agenda - sweet! I appreciate the info, maybe I'll see you there!
