The International Day of Peace was established by the UN General Assembly in 1981 to strengthen "the ideals of peace within and among all nations and people.” September 21st was designated as a “day of global ceasefire and non-violence" to commemorate peace on earth. This weekend, the town of Honoka’a on the north east coast of the Big Island will get the spirit moving.
Thursday, the Peace Film Series begins at the Honoka’a People’s Theatre at 6:30, and Saturday’s events include a poetry slam. On Sunday the big parade begins at 11am from Honoka’a High to the sports complex where games, food and merriment continue. For details, check www.peacedayparade.org
