Four more days until the lei draping of the Kamehameha statue! Five more days until the parade!! 200 years!!!
The picture [on the top] shows the various Hawaiian Societies seated on the Palace Grounds and listening to the speeches of the famous deeds of Kamehameha in his lifetime, and also the songs prepared for the day. The parade of the morning was one of the most beautiful parades seen. The small pictures below show parts of the parade; on the far left is Mrs. Alice Kamokila Macfarlane, the head of the Daughters of Hawaiian Warriors [Ahahui o na Kaikamahine a na Pukaua], along with some of the members. In the middle are the guards of Kamehameha armed with their spears, and on the far right is a picture showing the scene called “Mamalahoa Kanawai.”
[Don’t forget to turn out for or tune into the Kamehameha Parade of 2014!]
