HONOLULU – The Aloha Festivals proudly presents its 2014 merchandise collection to mark its 68th year celebrating Hawaiian culture and heritage. The 2014 Aloha Festivals merchandise – ribbons, power bands and T-shirts – reflects the Polynesian Voyaging Society’s mission to promote world peace through its sailing canoe Hōkūleʻa in honor of this year’s theme “Maluhia Honua – World Peace With Aloha.”
