Join us on Saturday morning, June 8, 2019, for the annual King Kamehameha Day Celebration Parade in Historic Kailua Village.

This year’s parade theme is Ka Mo‘i Kamehameha Nui, translated: “Kamehameha, the Sovereign Ruler of All.”

Adorned in the flowers and colors of the Hawaiian Islands, regal Pa‘u Rider Logopa‘u riders on horseback will represent each of the eight islands, led by their respective princesses and the pa‘u queen. The floral parade will also feature hula halau, equestrian units, marching bands, a horse-drawn carriage and more.

After the parade, enjoy a ho‘olaule‘a (music and art festival) at Hulihe‘e Palace, including a free concert featuring top Hawaiian recording artists. Then take time to visit the many shops, galleries and historic landmarks of Historic Kailua Village.

The Kona Orchid Society (KOS) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to educating our members and the public about the collection, culture, and appreciation of orchids.  Since 1985, we have promoted fellowship among orchid enthusiasts. Our members include both individual hobbyists and commercial growers, all brought together by our common interest.

KOS usually meets at 6:00PM on the first Friday of the month.

The meeting is held at the Makua Lani Academy Bridge House Building at 74-4966 Kealakaa St., off Palani Road in Kailua-Kona.   Our membership meetings are open to the public and we welcome anyone interested in joining us.  See our schedule of upcoming events for further information.  If you have an interest in becoming a member, see our membership page.

We have wonderful meetings where we learn from many orchid experts about how to successfully grow our orchids.  After sharing a pot luck meal and listening to our guest speakers we have a time for Show and Tell.  People bring their blooming orchids and share info about what elevation they live at and the type of orchid.  It is really amazing to see the beautiful orchids people are growing!  We end with an orchid raffle.  It is really fun.  

Each year on Mother’s Day weekend (Friday and Saturday), we hold our Annual Orchid Show and Sale in the pavilion at the Old Kona Airport in Kailua-Kona. If you are in the Kailua-Kona area, you won’t want to miss it.

Admission is FREE to everyone.

Hope to see you there!

Warm Aloha~
