PEARL HARBOR MEMORIAL PARADE - HONOLULU, HAWAII
December 4-9, 2023
December 7, 1941, was a day that would live in infamy and thrust the United States of America into the second World War. Today, Americans and people from all over the world gather to pay tribute to those whose service and sacrifice preserved freedom and liberty at home and abroad. The Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade is an important reminder of that fateful day at Pearl Harbor, while providing hope that from conflict and the devastation of war, peace and friendship can occur.
The theme of the Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade is "remembering our past and celebrating our future." The purpose of the parade is to honor and pay respect to the Pearl Harbor survivors, our veterans, active duty military and their families. The parade takes place each year in Hawaii on the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack.
