Honolulu to host multiple events over the weekend causing traffic
Starting from today, Downtown Honolulu will be hosting several events over the weekend that may cause some traffic.
The Honolulu Festival kicks off on Friday morning at the White Convention Center, followed by the 100th annual Coming Home in a School Song contest at the Blaisdell Center on Friday night.
The Honolulu Festival celebrations will continue at the White Convention Center on Saturday and Sunday, ending with a parade on Sunday from 4pm to 8pm on Kalakaua Avenue in Waikiki.
According to organizers, the parade is expected to attract over 60,000 people, featuring nearly 60 groups and fire-breathing dragon floats.
The event will end with a fireworks display at 8:30pm.
Apart from the Honolulu Festival, there will be men’s volleyball, baseball, and softball games happening on campus on Friday and Saturday night.
Women’s beach volleyball will also take place at Queen’s Beach in Waikiki.
While the events are expected to draw large crowds, the best way to get around would be on foot, especially in Waikiki where most events will take place.
The organizers encourage people to plan their commute ahead and be patient with traffic.
The events are a great opportunity for locals and visitors alike to enjoy the weekend in Downtown Honolulu, with something for everyone to enjoy.
