68th Annual Aloha Festivals Floral Parade Saturday in Waikiki

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The final touches are being made on the floats for Saturday's Aloha Festivals Floral Parade.

Volunteers have been busy decorating the floats with flowers and ti leaves for the 68th annual parade.

It will feature more than 50 groups, including hula halau, marching bands, and pa'u riding units. Two canoes will also be in the parade.

The entry from the Honolulu Pearl Canoe Club pays tribute to 80 of Hawaii's fallen military men and women.

"The way that we have display is that we have the paddles in the canoes," said Penny Kalua of the Honolulu Pearl Canoe Club. "It's almost like a missing man or woman formation so they're here in spirit."

The parade starts at 9:00 am Saturday at Fort DeRussy in Waikiki. It ends at Kapiolani Park. Parade organizers also need two more convertibles for the parade.

Anyone that can help should call Toni Lee at 808-222-7853.
