On Friday, December 4th, the annual Lights On Rice Parade was held on Rice Street. This year, four of our troops girls took part in the parade. Aleah and Kaytlen rode on the float with all of their pageant sisters.
Jayda marched with the Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle Schools band.
And Britnee rode with her Uncle Randy in the Kauai Police Department’s Bearcat which was decorated as Rudolph the red nose reindeer. She held her phone to the microphone which played Christmas music over the speaker for all the parade go-ers.
We were all at Vidinha Stadium from before 5:15pm which was when the roads were closed and returned back at the stadium once the parade was done, around 8:15pm. A good time was had by all…
The holidays are just around the corner! As we look forward to Christmas and the New Year, it becomes a very busy time for all of us. Not only do we get to look forward to what we will receive under our Christmas trees; we get to make our Christmas shopping lists, go shopping for our friends and families, and participate in the many community giving events that come our way.
The first giving opportunity arose on November 28th for Kaytlen and Aleah, both Na Hoku ‘O Kauai pageant queens. They spent their morning (8-11a) at the Lihue Walmart manning the Toys For Tots table at the garden entrance.
Later that afternoon at 3:30p, both girls met the rest of the Na Hoku ‘O Kauai’s pageant queens at Kmart’s back parking lot where they prepared for Kukui Grove’s 21st Annual Christmas Parade which was at 4:30-5:30p.
On Saturday, November 8th, two of our Girl Scouts – Aleah Yano and Kaytlen Akau, participated in the Kauai Veterans Day Parade with the Na Hoku ‘O Kauai and Hawaiian Royalty Pageant Queens. They spent 3.25 hours (7:45a – 11a) of their day decorating their float, riding in the parade and then breaking down their float and cleaning up.
The 2015 Koloa Plantation Days Parade took place this morning – Saturday, July 25th. Jayda Wakilina, the 2015 Petite Miss Hawaiian Royalty, rode on a float with the other Hawaiian Royalty and Na Hoku ‘O Kauai Queens. Jayda began her reign on July 5th and is the 2nd Petite Miss Hawaiian Royalty to be crowned.
