The Kamehameha Day parade is held annually in Honolulu in June. The route from 2010 is : Waikiki-Kalakaua Ave-Ala Moana Blvd-Punchbowl St-King St-Iolani Palace. When horses were introduced to Hawaii in the 19th century, Hawaiian women rode astride their horses with their long sarongs (pau) flowing behind them. Now they are seen mostly in parades with both riders and horses decorated with beautiful flower leis and colours associated with the various Hawaiian islands. This image shows a pau rider in Korean national dress on the left.
