Aloha Festivals is neither a commercial nor a state operation. It’s always operated with volunteers and a shoestring budget, fueled by aloha. In recent years, it has retrenched, but Oahu still hosts Hawaii’s largest street party, the Waikiki Hoolaulea (celebration), and the traditional Floral Parade. This year there’s Taste of Helumoa, a benefit for the festival, named for the coconut grove at the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center, where it is held. If you’re on Oahu in September, you’re in luck as official Aloha Festival events kick off Sept. 2. HawaiiMagazine.com recently posted a summary of 2010 Aloha Festival events, with dates and times included.
