A wonderful group of spirited ohana representing Aloha Hula and Palisades Elementary were given a much appreciated opportunity to participate in last Saturday, September 30, Aloha Festival Parade. The group performed in the parade from Ala Moana Park,through Kalakaua Avenue, to Kapiolani Park.
Mahalo to Kekoaokalani Rasa and Makua Leilani for providing their comments below as well as photos that captured their amazing experience in the Aloha Festival Parade.
"I just wanted to share an amazing day with my ‘ohana and aloha hula family and friends. My mom was invited by Kupuna Lee, to the Aloha Festival parade and we would like to send a big MAHALO to her for allowing us to take part of this special parade. Kupuna Lee put a lot of hard work and dedication and making sure that the 161 participants were well taken care of."
