Thousands are expected in Ala Moana and Waikiki this Saturday for the 70th annual Aloha Festivals Floral Parade.

The parade takes place Saturday, Sept. 24, starting at 9 a.m.

It begins at the intersection of Ala Moana Boulevard and Kamakee Street, proceeds along Ala Moana Boulevard, continues onto Kalakaua Avenue through Waikiki, and ends at Kapiolani Park. Drivers should keep this in mind when traveling in the area.

More than 50 groups are participating this year, including the 2016 Aloha Festivals Royal Court, hula hālau, marching bands, color guards, pā‘ū rider units, floral floats and decorated vehicles.

There will be an announcing booth at the start of the parade, and viewing stands will be stationed throughout the parade route so spectators can hear details and color commentary on the floats and parade participants.

Viewing stands are located at the Hawaii Prince Hotel, Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort, Royal Hawaiian Center, Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa, and the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Hotel.

Roads will reopen at the discretion of the Honolulu Police Department. The parade is expected to finish at around noon.
