The Parade
Parade Commissioned

 
The Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade Committee has been commissioned to organize the Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade, commemorating the anniversary of the invasion of Pearl Harbor each year on December 7th. The Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade is proclaimed by the Mayor of Honolulu as the "Official Public Event Marking the Anniversary of the Attack on Pearl Harbor". 

December 7 - Pearl Harbor Day


The parade theme is "remembering the past and celebrating our future." We honor our veterans and their families while recognizing that once bitter enemies can become loyal friends and allies. In order to establish a memorial to honor those who died in the attack on Pearl Harbor, the USS Arizona Memorial was dedicated in 1962. It has been visited by countless people from all over the world during the past 50 years. The Arizona Memorial is one of the few war-time memorials in the United States where actual survivors volunteer.

 

Our Mission 


The Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade will provide a meaningful tribute to our veterans and armed forces while featuring talented performing groups, associations, local, state and national dignitaries and organizations, along with military groups and officials joining together to share the Spirit of America with the citizens and visitors of Hawaii.

 

The Parade Route


The Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade begins at Fort DeRussey in Waikiki.  It proceeds down Kalakaua Avenue for 1 mile, then takes Monsarrat Avenue to the Waikiki Shell where an evening concert is held for participants in the parade.
