A lot of people make Hawaii’s Aloha Festivals the main reason for vacationing in Hawaii. It’s Hawaii’s proudest cultural showcase, a celebration of music, dance and history intended to preserve the unique island traditions. If you’re going to be in Hawaii in mid-September, it’ll be hard to miss the Festivals.
This year’s theme is “Hula — The Art of Hawaiian Dance,” so you can be sure to see even more of that beautiful dance than usual while you’re here.
The Festivals now encompass all the cultures of the people of Hawaii, and some 30,000 volunteers participate in the staging of the events, which are attended by nearly a million people … maybe including you.
For sure, you’ll want to join the Waikiki Hoolaulea on Friday night, September 12th. It’s a huge block party. Then the magnificent Floral Parade takes place in Waikiki, with female and male pau riders, extravagant floats loaded with flowers, and marching bands.
There will be something happening everywhere, constantly. Any Hawaii-Aloha agent can bring you up to date as the schedule fills out.
