Dr. Joel Punzal had to work, but his family, including Brity, who works at Punzal Vision, couldn’t resist getting an early morning treat from Daylight Donuts while saving space on the sidewalk fronting Ace Hardware.

When the 2018 edition of the King’s Parade and Celebration started to unfold, some of the Ace Hardware ohana spilled onto the sidewalks to view the pagentry and horses decked out in lei and floral decorations presented by the King Kamehameha Day Commissison in the area between Vidinha Stadium and the Historic County Building.

This was Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr.’s final parade as mayor, and the County of Kauai unit went all out, said Sarah Blane of the Mayor’s Office. Carvalho mounted a horse in his paniolo heritage and was joined by many of the county associates atop horses, and on foot, to present an impressive show on the island’s moku.

More celebrations awaited at the Historic County Building as food booths unwrapped offerings along with craft vendors and a day of entertainment to the delight of hundreds of visitors’ cameras.
