    The King Kamehameha Day Celebration Parade 2017 begins at 9 a.m. on Ali‘i Drive in Kailua-Kona on Saturday, June 10, 2017.

    The parade route will start near the Royal Kona Resort at Walua Road and pass through Historic Kailua Village to Kailua Pier and up Palani Road to Kuakini Highway.

    The highlight of the parade, the beautiful pa’u riders on horseback, will showcase the flora and colors of the eight Hawaiian Islands.

    The island units will be lead by the pa‘u queen and her equestrian unit.

    Parade participants will include at least 100 riders on horseback, as well as decorated floats, horse-drawn carriages, marching bands, equestrian units, hula hālau and more.

    The ho‘olaule‘a will feature food vendors, Hawaiian crafts and a silent auction.

    Songbird Diana Aki will perform live, along with hula performances and special guests.
