The Na Kamehameha Commemorative Pa‘u Parade is set for 9:45 a.m. on Saturday, June 14.

LAHAINA – The Na Kamehameha Commemorative Pa’u Parade & Ho’olaule’a Planning Committee warmly invite the community to commemorate and celebrate our ali’i.

The NKCPPH festivities will take place on Saturday, June 14, at 9:45 a.m. on Front Street. The parade will start from Kenui Street and proceed south toward Shaw Street.

The ho’olaule’a will open at 9 a.m. at Keawaiki (Banyan Tree Park). Festivities will include exhibits, pa’u awards presentation, food booths, Maui made crafters and local entertainment until sunset.

“One of the Planning Committee’s goals is to build and gather community. It is through this parade and ho’olaule’a that we create a venue to not only honor our ali’i but to educate as well. By doing this, we keep all that they have done for us alive,” noted Planning Committee Chair Daryl Mauliola Fujiwara.

Contact Fujiwara at (808) 264-8779 or sfdhawaii@gmail.com to obtain a 2014 parade application.

“We have six stations for commentary – a great way to showcase your organization and make announcements for upcoming events or to promote your organization,” he noted.

The deadline to apply is Friday, May 30. For updates, visit facebook.com/nkcpph.
