WAIKIKI—On Monday, January 17, at 9:00 a.m., the 23rd Annual Martin Luther King Junior Parade will travel down Kalakaua Avenue from Magic Island, culminating in a post-parade Unity Rally at Kapiolani Park. After the parade, the bandstand comes alive with stellar music and entertainment. The all-day festivities also include local and ethnic foods for purchase, a children’s playground, community booths, and other vendors.

In 2010, over 50 units and approximately 1000 people marched or rode in the parade, while many thousands watched from the sidewalks and buildings in Waikiki.
