Join the Ohana at the Ohana Day Parade
God’s Ohana Day Parade is on Saturday, July 9, 2022. This is a time when the churches in Oahu get to march down Kalakaua Avenue in the heart of Waikiki and declare the Good News about Jesus Christ. This celebration allows the church body to move in a spirit of love and share the message of Assurance for those with faith in Jesus Christ. One Love will be handing out a variety of promotional materials encouraging people to visit the GoodNewsHawaii. Just as the Bible says, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring the Good News,” we ask that you join us and share the love of Jesus on July 9. The parade begins at 9 a.m. at Fort Derussy Park. The first 150 adults that sign up for the event will get a limited edition assurance shirt for $5.
The parade will begin at Fort Derussy park, go down Kalakaua Avenue and end at Queen Kapiolani Bandstand.
Where: Fort Derussy Park (Kalakaua Side)
Dates: July 9, 2022
Time: Staging begins at 7 a.m.
Parade starts at 9:30 a.m.
Parking for the parade will be at the Kapiolani Park parking lot (located on the map below). You can also part at the Honolulu Zoo and pay for parking. From these parking lots, you can walk over to where the shuttle will be transporting people from Kapiolani Park to Fort DeRussy. The shuttle starts at 7:15 am and runs until 8 am. We encourage you to leave early to allow enough time to find parking.
We will have some awesome GoodNewsHawaii handouts cards to share with folks watching the parade. In addition, we encourage you to check out the goodnewshawaii.com website to see the message we will share with those in Waikiki. The website shares five videos addressing questions like: “What is the good news?” And “What is a church?”
Please bring water, sunscreen, a hat, and maybe a cool cloth for your neck. If you have a wagon, this may be good to help transport your items. The morning will be cool, but it’s going to get warmer. Please be prepared. We will have a tent at Kapiolani park with cold drinks and hotdogs at the end of the parade for you to enjoy. The tent will be in the same area as the Kapiolani Bandstand, marked on the map.
