Pau Riders in Verticle

Photo Hunt Challenge - Verticle


The Pau Rider's come to the Merrie Monarch Festival to march in one of the most spectacular parades in Hawaii today.



They come festooned with beautiful and huge cascading leis for their horses and for each rider's, elaborate head and neck ornamentation.



The colors of the gowns and native flowers reference the local origins of their particular islands.
