Contributed by Angelina Zeppieri, Quinn PR
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor. Those looking to “honor the past and inspire the future” can celebrate the 75th Commemoration with a trip to Hawaii, including special events and offerings for the December 7th holiday.
What to do:
- A memorial parade, concert, and war films at Waikiki Outdoor Theater. Featuring a dozen Pearl Harbor eye-witnesses, the “Remember Pearl Harbor” documentary will premiere. The events will culminate with the Honolulu Marathon open to all. See the full schedule of events here.
- The “December 7th Remembered” Gala Tribute is taking place at Waikiki’s historically iconic Hilton Hawaiian Village, which is also in close proximity to major event venues including Pearl Harbor Visitor Center and Hawaii Convention Center. When not attending events, guests of the hotel can enjoy an array of watersports at the world-famous Duke Kahanamoku Lagoon and Beach, authentic activities from lei making to ukulele classes, and more.
