Dole is celebrating the unsurpassed beauty of Hawaii, where the company was founded in 1851, with this floral salute and gives special thanks to all the DOLE fans around the world. Polynesian and fire dancers will flank the “Living Well in Paradise” float which features the Hawaiian King Kamehameha, five waterfalls, whimsical monkeys, colorful birds and of course, fresh and healthy fruit grown by DOLE just for the Rose Parade.
My book Wai-nani; High Chiefess of Hawaii is a celebration of the Hawaiian people of old. Through the eyes of high chiefess, Wai-nani, experience the Hawaiian society as it existed when Captain James Cook arrived at Kealakekua Bay in 1779.
