Pau riders in Hawaii are today’s flowers presentation. These amazing riders come from all the islands of Hawaii to participate in the annual Merrie Monarch Parade which caps a week of celebration for Hula Dancing.
These riders are for me the most exhilarating part of the parade.
Beautiful headdresses and lei ornamentation, and the huge leis draping each horse is painstakingly made with natural materials and fresh exotic flowers from each island.
I love this amazing combination of purple and red chrysanthemums, roses and
carnations on these amazing and huge leis draping each horse.
I could never get enough of these beautiful riders from each island.
This last one is one of my favorite celebrants to the parade and quite a ham.
