King Kamehameha Day!

Kamehameha Day Celebration Parade

June 11 in Hawaii is Kamehameha Day. Kamehameha Day was first honored and established by Kamehameha the fifth on 12-22-1871. It was started as a day to remember his granddad, Kamehameha the first. The first time it was observed was on the following year.

In the late 1800s the day was celebrated with fairs, races and other competitions. When Hawaii became a state in 1959 Kamehameha Day was one of the first holidays the Governor of Hawaii proclaimed.

Today, Kamehameha Day is celebrated with a floral parade bringing you back to the Hawaii of yesteryear. The King Kamehameha Hula Competition brings hula groups from all over the world and is a two-day event.

On the Big Island of Hawaii, there are three parades. One between the towns of Hawi and Kapaʻau and one in the town of Hilo. In Kona, we have a Parade and Ho`olaule`a on Ali`i Drive every year. If you are here, come on down and celebrate the festivities!
