The Aloha Festival Parade in Waikiki is normally one of the most colorful parades in the nation, but this year… I have to ask… what happened to all the floats?
Last year there were 14 floats according to the Star-Advertiser. This year there was only 5!
The Star-Advertiser said there was 5 floats… but as I look back over my pictures… I think they may have mistaken a few pooper scooper’s as floats.
Of course there was lots of equestrian units as well!
While the horse were adorned with much flowers… I had to feel sorry for them a bit as it was a hot day!
While I felt sorry for the horses… the folks I really felt sorry for… were the kids in all the marching bands that walked from Ala Moana Park all the way to Kapiolani Park!
I couldn’t imagine carrying this thing for nearly 3 to 4 miles in the blazing sun!
