Hundreds of Hawaii keiki braved 40-degree weather in New York for the 90th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Na Koa Ali‘i, the Hawaii All State Marching Band, represented the Aloha state in Manhattan and on national television with more than 400 band members and 200 hula dancers.

The performers come from 41 private and public high schools across the state, and combined, make up the largest band ever to perform in the famed parade.

This was the band’s third appearance at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

They were followed by the King’s Hawaiian float “The Aloha Spirit,” which featured plumeria, a water fall, and a volcano that erupted confetti.

Following the parade, the kids celebrated with a Thanksgiving meal at their Long Island hotel.
