National Pearl Harbor Anniversary Parade and Public Ceremony
December 7 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The parade theme is “remembering the past and celebrating our future.” We honor our veterans and their families while recognizing that once bitter enemies can become loyal friends and allies. In order to establish a memorial to honor those who died in the attack on Pearl Harbor, the USS Arizona Memorial was dedicated in 1962. It has been visited by countless people from all over the world during the past 50 years. The Arizona Memorial is one of the few war-time memorials in the United States where actual survivors volunteer.
The Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade will provide a meaningful tribute to our veterans and armed forces while featuring talented performing groups, associations, local, state and national dignitaries and organizations, along with military groups and officials joining together to share the Spirit of America with the citizens and visitors of Hawaii.
