On Saturday, June 11 from 9 AM to 2 PM, the Fabulous Floral Parade starts at 9AM from Vidinha Stadium. The Kauai Community will honor the great Ali’i of Hawaii who cared for their people. Over 150 horses will be in the parade. Various locals will portray the King, Queen and princesses. Each princess presides over her own unit representing one of the eight Hawaiian Islands. They will be adorned in the flowers and  colors of the Island they are representing. For Kauai, Naniu’i Ka’ohelauli’i will be in purple and wearing mokihana. For the Big Island, the color is red; Kaho’olawe = blue; Mauai = pink; Lanai = orange; Molokai = green; O’ahu = yellow; Ni’ihau = brown. There is also great entertainment at the Historic County Building. The parade itself is sponsored by the County of Kauai, Malie Foundation and the King Kamehameha Celebration Commission.

Another celebration is for the Kauai Beach Guide app which is not only for iPhone but also now for Android phones.  You can download it FREE from iTunes and Google Play. The app has daily ocean and weather reports; lists which beaches are lifeguarded and which are not good for swimming; names the facilities at each beach; GPS; and much, much more.  You can also check out the sponsors of a number of the beaches: the Grand Hyatt, Kauai ATV, Kauai Down Under, Kayak Kauai, Z Tours Kauai, Tracy’s Map, PiliMai at Poipu, and Makai Properties.Poipu Beach, South Shore
