The party of the year, the pa­rade of the year and weeks of cul­tural cel­e­bra­tion mark the an­nual Aloha Fes­ti­vals, a ma­jor event statewide. One of the main high­lights is the largest block party of the year, the Waikīkī Ho‘olaule‘a on Sept. 17. Twelve blocks of Kalākaua Av­enue will be lined with food booths, crafters and lei ven­dors, and mul­ti­ple en­ter­tain­ment stages fill the air with fes­tiv­ity. On Sept. 24, show­man­ship reigns dur­ing the 70th An­nual Flo­ral Pa­rade as pa‘u rid­ers (women on horse­back), hula hālau and lav­ish, flower-adorned floats stream down Kalākaua from Ala Moana Park. Other events take place from Sept. 1-30.
