Aloha VW Ohana,
The VW Club of Hawaii was invited to the 95th running of the Kamehameha Day Parade! This was a live telecasted event! We were looking for 30 or more cars, but came in with 24 for our first time out in this historical event. We want to thank all the drivers who came out early at 5:00am for the line up and showed their Hawiian spirit with their awesome elaborate floral decorated VW’s! Being invited to and involved in such an event really hits home in the roots of Hawaiian history! It was such an honor to be in the presence of the Royal Kamehameha family. So many smiles and shaka’s throughout the parade from VW fans. The other great news is …WE ARE INVITED BACK NEXT YEAR IN 2012!!! Aloha and Mahalo as we hope to see you there next year! The VW Club of Hawaii
