KING KAMEHAMEHA CELEBRATION COMMMISSION
Announces the 100th Anniversary King Kamehameha Celebration Floral Parade
To “commemorate the memory of the great Polynesian Hawaiian warrior and statesman King Kamehameha I, who united the Hawaiian Islands into the Kingdom of Hawai‘i…” pursuant to HRS §8-5.
The celebration of King Kamehameha and his notion of unification are applicable to the people of Hawaiʻi today. His ideals and values are still found in our present laws. Section 10 of the Hawaiʻi State Constitution: “The law of the splintered paddle, māmalahoe kānāwai, decreed by Kamehameha I--Let every elderly person, woman and child lie by the roadside in safety--shall be a unique and living symbol of the State's concern for public safety.”
June 11, 1914 – The first Kamehameha Day Parade, from ‘Aʻala Park to the statue of King Kamehameha fronting Aliʻiōlani Hale. There were no Parades in 1942 or 1943 due to World War II.
Date: June 11, 2016 Time: 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Theme: Ka Puni ‘Ana o ka Haneli Makahiki – Celebrating 100 Years!!!
