Hawaii Island Festival - 30 Days of Aloha - Waimea 43rd Annual Paniolo Parade

September 15, 2018
10:00am - 11:00am

We show off our paniolo, the art of pa'u, the art of hula, oli, olelo, our royal society Ahahui Ka'ahumanu Waimea Chapter. We have schools, church groups, hula halau, businesses, etc, as participants in our annual Paniolo Parade.

Many of our paniolo and pa'u riders are true paniolo; they all own ranches, work & live the way of paniolo as their kupuna and teach our younger generation, thus perpetuate our host culture. Some of our pa'u riders are 5th generation who live the lifestyle.

This event provides venues for practitioners to share their skills and knowledge of the culture. It also provides venues for artisans to display and sell their work. Our paniolo and pa'u riders perpetuate our host culture. Our events also draw visitors during this "shoulder period" who learn, experience, respect our host culture and help our economy.
