King’s Village is a very unique place – a shopping center unlike any other – located in the heart of Waikiki on the island of Oahu. The old and narrow cobblestone paths, colorful small houses and unique shops have a European atmosphere. Yet King’s Village also depicts Honolulu as it might have looked like at the turn of the century. There are a few restaurants and more than 45 shops to discover featuring thousands of items from Hawaii, as well as imports from all over the world.
At the front gate of King’s Village, there is a daily event at 6:15 pm, the “Changing of the King’s Guard.” The King’s Guard wears uniforms that are the exact replica of those worn by the Hawaiian Royal Palace Guard for King Kalakaua in 1875. Watch as they do a spectacular rifle drill demonstration after retiring the Hawaiian flag.
Also visit Waikiki’s version of Hollywood’s “Walk of Fame.” The King’s Village “Celebrity Circle” features the handprints of some of Hawaii’s best-loved celebrities as well as a few nationally known ones.
King’s Village is open from 10:00 am to 11:00 pm daily and is located at 131 Kaiulani Avenue, next to the Hyatt Regency Waikiki.

They don't have the changing of the guard any

performers . Great show . I hope they have it still
