This parade is expected to get national coverage. It’s actually only a 15 – 20 minute walk, but because of the number of participants in past years, the event is scheduled to last longer than 2.5 hours. HPD controls the stop and go of traffic per the entire cross streets.
If you are interested in participating in this event, contact Clinton Wong HWSU manager at email@example.com.
