We're doing it again!
For the second year in a row, HAWAII Magazine is giving away a free round-trip for two to Oahu and a five-day, four-night stay in Waikiki to attend the 2012 Aloha Festivals in our HAWAII Magazine Aloha Festivals Oahu Flyaway.
The Aloha Festivals, now in its 66th year, is one of Hawaii’s longest-running cultural showcases and celebrations of Hawaii music, dance and history. Founded in 1946 as Aloha Week, the celebration was renamed Aloha Festivals in 1991.
This year’s theme, Ho‘onui ‘Ike, translates as “To increase knowledge, enrich.” Oahu events begin on Sept. 6 and continue until Sept. 22.
Among the fests' highlights is the Annual Aloha Festivals Floral Parade. Set for Sept. 22, the parade will kick off at Ala Moana Beach Park, head down Waikiki beachfront main drag Kalakaua Avenue, and end at Kapiolani Park at the foot of Diamond Head. And from start to finish, parade participants will include a colorful equestrian procession pau riders, flower-bedecked floats, hula halau (hula groups) and marching bands.
Oh, and one more thing. You and a guest could be there to watch it all, with VIP seating along the parade route!
Here's what the lucky winner of HAWAII Magazine's Aloha Festivals Flyaway will get:
• Complimentary Hawaiian Airlines roundtrip coach airfare for the winner and one guest between Oahu and one of 11 gateway cities served by Hawaiian Airlines in North America.
• Five-days/four-nights complimentary accommodations at the Hawaii Prince Hotel Waikiki, Sept. 20-24, 2012.
• Dinner for two at the Royal Hawaiian Center in Waikiki.
• Two 48-hour passes on AlohaBus.
• Merchandise gifts from the Aloha Festivals.
• VIP seating at the 66th Annual Aloha Festivals Floral Parade, on Sept. 22.
