When to Visit Honolulu

If Honolulu is on your bucket list, I strongly recommend visiting in mid-March.  Not only is the weather mild (if you don’t mind the occasional rain shower) but that’s when the annual Honolulu Festival is held.

It’s actually a celebration of all the various races and cultures that are Hawaii. The Japanese, Chinese, Indonesians, Tahitians, etc. After days of exhibits and contests held at various venues throughout the city, the festivities end with a parade that goes on literally all day.

Can’t remember where these dudes were from.

And it is exuberant and full of fun.  And loud!

Lot of drummers!

But after dark the world explodes.

Next, a more somber but also unforgettable festival.

  1. Jan, this was so fun and exciting! It helped me to feel closer to my future dream vacation. 🙂 My youngest daughter went a semester of her senior year to Chamunade University which is a “sister college” to University of Dayton. I helped her pack up, wishing my life were not a mess (my ex was unemployed, we were facing house foreclosure and I was teaching as well as a 2nd job to reach my Master’s. . . ) Oh, how I would have loved to go to Hawaii! ❤ So glad you were with your new grandbaby from his beginning.
