Come join us in the 22nd Anniversary of the Waikīkī Holiday Parade on November 29th (Friday)! The Hawaii Bicycling League has been invited to celebrate the festive holiday season while honouring the Pearl Harbor survivors in the Waikīkī Holiday Parade! The parade starts at Fort DeRussy Park and follows Kalākaua Avenue till Kapi’olani Park (~1.5 miles). You can check out the parade route by clicking HERE.
The parade is expected to run from 7:00-9:00pm. We are allowed to start staging as early as 5:30pm by the post office on Saratoga Road. Please plan to meet us there to decorate your bike and helmet at 6pm! We will bring some garlands and things to dress up our rides, but if you have some festive accessories (lights, garlands, etc.) to deck out your bike then please bring them! You can wear whatever you feel comfortable cruising along in (the more holiday spirit the better!), just make sure it doesn’t interfere with you riding safely. Riders without a helmet or bikes without a front-facing white light and rear-facing red light will be prohibited from riding in the parade. *Details subject to change
“The Waikiki Holiday Parade commemorates Pearl Harbor by honoring survivors and veterans in memory of the attacks from December 7, 1941. Local Hawaiian bands, marching bands from the mainland, military units, local officials and dignitaries march down torch-lit Kalakaua Avenue along Waikiki Beach. It is held annually the Friday following Thanksgiving Day and hosts thousands of spectators, residents and visitors alike.” For more information, visit their website: waikikiholidayparade.com
