Celebrating the 142nd King Kamehameha Day

In honor of King Kamehameha I, June 11 was established as a state holiday in Hawaii to pay tribute to the most highly regarded leader in Hawaiian history. Referred to as Kamehameha the Great, his accomplishments left behind a great legacy which included uniting the eight islands into one kingdom.

This year commemorates the 142nd King Kamehameha Day Celebration with events occurring statewide throughout the week. For the first time this year, the hoolaulea on Oahu will include a free concert as part of the HTA’s Hawaiian Music Concert Series program. The Oahu hoolaulea will be held at the Kakaako Makai Gateway Park on Saturday, June 14 and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., following the 98th Annual King Kamehameha Celebration Floral Parade.
