After the parade, the bandstand
comes alive with stellar music and entertainment. There will again be great
local & ethnic foods, a children’s playground, community booths and other
vendors. Hawaii’s parade is truly “the people’s parade”. In 2008,
over 50 units and some 1000 people marched or rode in the parade, many
thousands watched from the sidewalks and buildings in Waikiki, and an estimated
3000 attended the 2008 post-parade celebration.
