Experience the Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade
WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL HOME OF THE NATIONAL
PEARL HARBOR MEMORIAL PARADE
2021 - COMMEMORATING THE
80TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ATTACK ON PEARL HARBOR
December 7, 1941, was a day that would live in infamy and thrust the United States of America into the second World War. Now 80 years later, Americans and people from all over the world gather to pay tribute to those whose service and sacrifice preserved freedom and liberty at home and abroad. During this five year WWII commemoration period, the Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade will commemorate the 80th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. This will be an important reminder of that fateful day, while providing hope that from conflict and the devastation of war, peace and friendship can occur. The Annual Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade will also feature an 80th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor Massed Band and Choir in our official opening ceremony.
The theme of the Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade is "remembering our past while celebrating that once bitter enemies can become friends and allies." The purpose of the parade is to honor and pay respect to the Pearl Harbor survivors, our veterans, active duty military and their families. The parade takes place each year in Hawaii on December 7th - the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack.
