From HI NOW, Hawaii News Now - History of the King Kamehameha Celebrations

"Sponsored by King Kamehameha Celebration Commission

A Pala’au community group created a festival to celebrate Kamehameha I. This festival highlights pa’u, which refers to the skirt that female horseback riders wear. Volunteers at the festival came together to create floral displays with a variety of Hawaiian flowers. Then, each participating island appointed a princess, and with the Grand Marshal leading the festivities, celebrated King Kamehameha’s legacy."
