We will be on Ohau from the 9 – 15 June, visiting for the first time. Whilst reserching I noticed that there are a couple of King Kamehameha Day Events happening during our stay. Does anyone know:
1. On the 11th June will the shops and tourist attractions (the Iolani Palace and Mission House Museum in particular) still be open as normal as it is a state holiday? We would like to visit Downtown Honolulu this day to coincide with the Kamehameha Statue Lei Draping Ceremony.
2. Is the King Kamehameha Day Parade on 12th June worth seeing? We were planning to visit the Polynesian Cultural Centre that day.
