If you are planning on camping out for a while with the kids, make sure to nab a good spot early, because the sidewalks are always packed. The parade starts at the 4-way stop by Casanova’s and Polli’s and stretches through to Eddie Tam. The noise level will be high, the heat intense, and the atmosphere enjoyable.
Before, during, and after the parade, the Rodeo will be in full swing at Oskie Rice Arena, up Olinda Road. The events range from the simple (young kids who trot the horses around a course) to dangerous (burly men being thrown off bulls and roping frazzled calves). Come visit little Makawao Town this weekend for a lot of fun.
