Makawao Parade

Celebrate the 4th of July weekend by watching the Makawao 4th of July Parade that kicks off the hugely popular Makawao Rodeo! Go early for best parking and viewing. Kamoda’s Bakery is a must for the best Cream Puffs on Maui! Pollie’s will be open for Breakfast and Bloody Mary’s if you want to grab a bit to eat before the Parade. My favorite part of the Makawao Parade is the Pa’u Riders; Hawaiian wahine (women) riding Horses decorated in huge Flower Leis! Back in the 1800s, there were some thirty or forty Hawaiian women all, superb horsewomen dressed gorgeously in native riding costumes. Today you usually only see the Pa’u Riders participating in Parades on all the major Hawaiian Islands. The Pa’u Riders and their Horses are very beautiful to watch!
