Pahoa Holiday Parade 2008


It’s time again for one of the biggest event of the year, our Annual Pahoa Holiday Parade in beautiful Historic Pahoa. This year the Parade will be held on December 6, 2008 and the Theme will be “ Pahoa in the Flow.”

Each year, the children and adults of our Community look forward to this event that leads into the Annual Hoolaulea held at the Pahoa High School.

Our Grand Marshal for the Parade will be Paul Ogasawara owner of Paul’s Repair Shop and one who has contributed much to our Community.

We are seeking Sponsors and donations from Businesses, Community Groups, and Individuals who are interested and willing to assist us in meeting our costs.

All participants work very hard and take great pride in their Floats and Musical Performances and your contribution in cash or in-kind services will be warmly appreciated by everyone in the Community.
