Posted: Updated:

(Hawaii News Now) - Looking for a great opportunity to experience and help support the fascinating cultures of the Pacific Rim? Hawaii's biggest and most exciting cultural festival is the perfect choice!  The 19th Annual Honolulu Festival is looking for volunteers to assist with the various events and exhibits showcasing the cultural arts and people of the Pacific Rim and Hawaii during the weekend of March 1-3, 2013.  The Honolulu Festival consists of two days, March 2-3, of engaging and enriching cultural performances at the Hawaii Convention Center, Waikiki Beach Walk, and DFS Galleria. On Sunday, March 3, Hawaii's first-ever "Honolulu Rainbow Ekiden" relay race, sponsored by JTB Corporation and co-sponsored by Honolulu Festival, will take place at noon in Waikiki followed by the popular Grand Parade along Kalakaua Avenue starting at 4:30 p.m. The festival will conclude with the spectacular Nagaoka Fireworks Display over Waikiki Beach at 8:30 p.m.  The public is invited to provide volunteer assistance for a range of activities and services, such as coordinating with visiting school groups, providing event schedules and information to visitors and selling festival logo goods. Volunteers are also needed to help build and march the Daijayama (fire-breathing dragon) float in the Grand Parade. They can also work at the Ennichi Corner at the Hawaii Convention Center, an activity area dedicated to children, inspired by the traditional Japanese Saint's Day Festival.
